When the Ebbing, Missouri Police Department is unable to solve her daughter Angela's murder, tough-as-nails Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) decides to make a bold move. She rents three billboards leading into the town and paints controversial messages on them pointing a finger at police chief William Willoughby (Woody Harrelson) ineptness.

The billboards seem to get under the skin of several of the town's residents, but Mildred is plenty capable of taking them on. When the chief's 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.

  • 3 stars "Liked the acting, (the advertising guy mumbled wayyyy too much at first)... but really how could the cop hit the advertising guy and throw him out the window and likely break the secretary's nose and basically only get fired?!?!?! He didn't like the billboards but he took it wayyy to the extreme. Hated the ending. Yes they might kill a POSSIBLE rapist who they both were unaware visited the mother in her store and oddly threw a $7 item and smashed it as well as admitting to raping a girl while an x-cop was in the booth (who you could totally see sitting there!..FYI any cop will tell you they will sit facing the door so they can see who comes and goes), they were likely going to kill the possible rapist killer. I didn't mind it, the acting was good but the story had too many holes and conveniences."
  • 3 stars "A good story and acting but downgraded it due to far too much crude language and sexual references . Though expected of such characters in this film, could have been toned down somewhat."
  • 5 stars "The acting was excellent! The movie was so engrossing...very dark at times but then we found ourselves laughing at times also... dark humor? It is such a powerful story about how sorrow, hatred, anger, and revenge can consume you."
