Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri is a darkly comic drama from Academy Award winner 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 (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.
The movie was filmed in a small mountain town in western North Carolina called Sylva.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri received 7 Oscar nominations in 2018, including Best Picture, Best Actress (Frances McDormand), Best Original Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor (Sam Rockwell), Best Supporting Actor (Woody Harrelson).
