A darkly comic drama from Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh (In Bruges, Seven Psychopaths).
After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, paying local advertising company to put up three signs on the backroad which leads 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.
Frances McDormand gives her best performance since Fargo as a plucky vigilante. Igniting a firestorm in the community as the police force evades charges of racism and corruption.
