THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI is a darkly comic drama from Academy Award nominee Martin McDonagh (In Bruges). After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson), the town's revered chief of police. When his second-in-command Officer Dixon (Academy Award winner 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.Written by

You Red Welby?
Yes, ma'am. How may I help you?
I heard there's three billboards out on Drinkwater Road. You're in charge of renting them out, that right?
I didn't know we had any billboards out on Drinkwater. Where is Drinkwater Road?
It's a road out past the Sizemore turn-off. Nobody uses it since the freeway got put in.
You are right. Got three billboards out there. Nobody's put nothing up out there since 1986. That was 'Huggies'.
How much to rent out all...

Folks, if anyone doubts that Hollywood and big-city liberals despise ordinary Americans, have them watch this sorry excuse for a movie. It's overflowing with all of the typical insults and egregiously bogus misconceptions of rural life, especially that of the Mid West.
As for the movie, it's a mess from start to finish. The story line is full of billboard-sized holes and is often unbelievable to the point of frustration. The casting is awkward; the characters are loathsome, the gratuitous profanity is appalling; and the ending is just plain lazy.
Avoid this social-justice garbage ...and the people who promote it!
