With his first two feature films, In Bruges (2008) and Seven Psychopaths (2012), British playwright turned director and screenwriter Martin McDonagh deftly transferred his gift for scabrous dialogue, pitch black comedy, bone crunching violence and memorably drawn characters, from the stage to the big screen. His latest Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is in a similar vein and features a storming central performance from Frances McDormand.
As small-town resident Mildred Hayes, McDormand is a tornado of foul language, indignation and guilt-ridden recklessness as a mother grieving for her murdered daughter and sick to death of the local police’s ineffectual homicide investigations. McDonagh dissects the American psyche and its deep seated social divisions through Mildred’s escalating public feud with community leader Chief Willoughby (Woody Harrelson).
By turns hilarious and sobering, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri also features exemplary supporting performances from Sam Rockwell, Abbie Cornish and John Hawkes.
Please note this screening has now SOLD OUT.
