Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
BUY TICKETS 8pm Thursday 5 April
DIRECTOR Martin McDonagh
CAST Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Abbie Cornish
Frances McDormand excels in Martin McDonagh’s blackly funny drama as a mother tackling the local police force about their lack of progress in the search for her daughter’s murderer.
Writer-director Martin McDonagh (In Bruges) is back with a scabrously funny drama about the battle between grieving mother Mildred (Frances McDormand) and the local head of law enforcement (Woody Harrelson). After months without an arrest in her daughter’s murder investigation, Mildred makes a bold move, posting three signs on the road leading into town challenging the police department to do something. McDormand is phenomenal in this dizzying ride which deftly balances dark comedy and wrenching tragedy.
(2017 UK / USA 115 mins)
McDonagh showed in ‘In Bruges’ and ‘Seven Psychopaths’ that he can flip in a second between laughs and violence, but there’s a new layer of compassion here too. ‘Three Billboards’ plays like a country ballad that’s full of improvised riffs on old themes: its verses head off in different directions, some violent and swearing, others reflective or funny. It’s full of sharp dialogue and entertaining characters and fuelled by a wryly enlightened view of our world and how it can be at once cruel and caring. For a story built on such dark foundations, it’s weirdly reassuring. It’s also enormous fun. Dave Calhoun, Time Out
