Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is the first film of 2017 that I can call amazing. With so many big releases this year ranging from average to disappointing, it feels great to walk out of a theater nearly 100% satisfied. Three Billboards centers around Mildred Hayes, played by Frances McDormand, who’s daughter was raped and murdered nearly a year ago. After seven months of silence from the local police Mildred, still obviously recovering from the loss of her daughter, takes it upon herself to put the case back in the public eye. Mildred buys up three run down billboards and plasterers the messages, “raped while dying.” “and still no arrests.” and “How come, Chief Willoughby?” This obvious sparks outrage in the quiet town of Ebbing, Missouri from not only the local police, but also everyday citizens. That is all I want to give away.
