Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

AVAILABLE NOW! Rated R 114 minutes AMAZON US    |    AMAZON CA    |    AMAZON UK Award-winning actress Frances McDormand (Fargo) delivers a stunningly powerful performance in this darkly comic drama that has been hailed as one of the year’s best films. A murdered girl’s defiant mother (McDormand) boldly paints three local signs with a controversial message, igniting a furious battle with a volatile cop ( Sam Rockwell ) and the town’s revered chief of police ( Woody Harrelson ). REVIEW: Frances McDormand, you're my spirit animal. Seeing her in this movie, playing this fiercely-loving mother, I am so in awe! She was epic! Her role in this movie was epic! The emotions it stirred in me as a mother was epic! I can totally see why this is an award-winning film.  If you're a parent, ask yourself what you would do if someone harmed one of your kids. Now ask yourself if you would ever give up on getting justice for those crimes against your chil
