Trailer for ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ Put Pressure on the Police to Solve a Murder
I’m not sure how many of you readers are fans of Martin McDonagh, but his films (In Bruges, Seven Psychopaths) defy genre classification. While they are mostly darkly comedic, they are typically thrilling and also, at times, quite gruesome. I’m a huge fan and I think you will be too, if you aren’t already.
Next up for McDonagh is Fox Searchlight’s Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, a politically charged darkly comic drama that mostly doesn’t belong on Bloody Disgusting, but does take a new look at a mother’s scorn after losing her daughter in a horrific murder.
After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (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.
Fitting right into 2017 by shining the light on social issues, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri targets being a woman (and a mother), the screwed up system, police, and even sensationalized news reporting . While this isn’t new, it is a fresh perspective that really intrigues me. And with McDonagh’s no-holds-barred anything goes attitude, I expect this to be one of the best films of the year.
