Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri Poster

With just two feature films to date (In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths), Martin McDonagh had already proved himself to be one of the great writer/directors working and a master of the dark crime dramedy.  And now Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri further confirms it. 

Frances McDormand plays a woman relentless to find her daughter's killer.  And since she believes the local police aren't doing they're fair share, she decides to rent three billboards accusing the local police chief (Woody Harrelson) of such.  Sam Rockwell and Peter Dinklage also costar.  Great dialogue and unexpected character arcs are abound, and this movie is likely to get some recognition come awards time.  So see it now and be ahead of the game.

Grade: A

Who is this movie for?  If you like dark crime comedy/dramas for mature audiences, mixed with some profanity and violence, and great dialogue, a superb cast, and interesting character arcs, this is the film I recommend you see this weekend.
