Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri deftly balances black comedy against searing drama and draws unforgettable performances from its veteran cast along the way.

Over 100 festival wins including 5 x BAFTA and an OSCAR each for Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell.

After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson), the town’s revered chief of police. When his second-in-command Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell), an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing’s law enforcement is only exacerbated.

‘One of those truly rare films that feels both profound and grounded’ Roger Ebert
