This premiere will mark the end of BFI’s London Film Festival 2017. It is Martin McDonagh’s follow-up to Seven Psychopaths (LFF 2012) and is a characteristically pitch-black comedic drama featuring a blistering central performance from actor Frances McDormand.
The film is a scabrous and funny tale about the battle between a grieving mother and the local head of law enforcement, covering relevant topics in social injustice and small-town bigotry.
It’s been seven months since her daughter was murdered and foul-mouthed, tough-as-nails Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) is fed up. Fuelled by grief and outraged that the investigation has gone quiet, she provokes the local police department with a series of messages plastered on three disused billboards outside her home town of Ebbing, Missouri.
A universally splendid cast is rounded out by Abbie Cornish, Peter Dinklage, John Hawkes, Clarke Peters and Caleb Landry Jones.
