“Frances McDormand is a grieving mother who puts up u0026quot;Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouriu0026quot; in this 2017 black comedy directed by Martin McDonagh.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMildred Hayes (McDormand) is disgusted that the police havenu0026#39;t found her daughteru0026#39;s rapist and killer, so she takes out billboards asking why the chief of police, Willoughby (Woody Harrelson) hasnu0026#39;t done anything about the case.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe billboards set off anger, violence, and revenge motifs in this small town. Things become worse when a pent-up police officer, Dixon (Sam Rockwell) becomes enraged and starts acting out.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLots of swearing, lots of violence, and lots of laughs to be had in this film. It was strange to watch as I had just seen another film, Past Life, that focused on the subject of anger and pain, and how it can eat a person up and destroy them. This film is yet another good illustration of that, as Mildred stops at nothing to make a point.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe one-liners are amazing, and Mildredu0026#39;s speech to the priest who comes by to ask her to remove the billboards is hilarious. The movie is filled with strong performances and equally well-developed characters. We see all of their sides – violent, kind, vengeful, angry, sad; we finally realize theyu0026#39;re just people driven in some cases to extremes.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eHarrelsonu0026#39;s performance is touching — weu0026#39;re prepared to dislike him but his sincerity and humanity come through. As Dixon, Rockwell seems like a monster, but once he acts out, heu0026#39;s able to focus his energy a little better.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAnd then thereu0026#39;s McDormand, a powerhouse. Sheu0026#39;s not good olu0026#39; Marge in Fargo. Sheu0026#39;s a tough woman with a broken heart who takes out her anger any way she can. Itu0026#39;s a beautiful, multilayered performance. Highly recommended, asking the questions of where revenge and hatred can take us, and deciding when and if it stops.”
