Frustrated with the lack of progress by the local police in finding those responsible for the brutal murder of her daughter, a mother (Frances McDormand) installs three controversial billboards on the edge of town to goad the department into action. Her decision leads to a clash with both the chief of police (Woody Harrelson) and his unhinged second-in-command (Sam Rockwell). Lucas Hedges, Clarke Peters, Peter Dinklage, John Hawkes, Abbie Cornish, and Caleb Landry Jones co-star in this crime drama from writer/director Martin McDonagh (In Bruges).~Daniel Gelb

There are SO many great characters in this film I cannot decide who's the best. The acting from Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, and Sam Rockwell are ALL so outstanding, but even the minor roles held by actors that will look familiar to you are incredible. Great story, it's funny, sad, dramatic, and at times will have you on the edge of your seat. Don't hesitate to own this film. I love it. No matter how many times I've seen it, it never gets old.
This is a very good movie and has an excellent plot. All of the acting is excellent and what is much better than I thought it would be
I would recommend this to a friend

An almost perfect movie

Surprisingly humorous for the subject matter, also poignant and dark in places. Great characters and Sam Rockwell is amazing, as is Frances McDormand, whose character’s ability to stand up for herself against others’ attempts to make her apologize for or let go of her grief and anger made me cheer out loud! The ending is a little abrupt but still satisfying.
My favorite film of 2008 was “In Bruges”, the directing debut of Irish playwright Martin McDonagh, and now McDonagh furthers his art with his third film, “Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri”, a sort of dark comic crime film that is really a complex character study of a disgruntled mother upset at a town’s failure to solve the murder of her teenage daughter to the point she rents three billboards outside the town to call attention to the unsolved murder. Frances McDormand plays the grieving divorced mother, Mildred Hayes, in a performance that might even surpass her Oscar-winning role in the Coen Brothers’ 1996 “Fargo”. She’s cynical, angry at the core, street-smart while flawed, and her inner journey is rightly the film’s main focus. But she isn’t the only character sketch that fascinates in this film. Two other characters display important moral arcs: the town sheriff Chief Willoughby (Woody Harrelson, surprisingly the most likeable) and, most significantly, Officer Dixon (a career best performance by Sam Rockwell that seems the film’s most memorable). The movie’s brilliant wit and marvelous interactive dialogue is matched by McDonagh’s handling of the actors and control of the visual style, while keeping the humanity of the characters at the forefront as he deftly manages to circumvent the clichés always found in these kind of movies. Highly recommended as a remarkably composed portrait of small town America, it sends viewers out of the theater to contemplate moral questions concerning justice, revenge, anger and forgiveness. It is one of the year’s most entertaining movies.
It's a story about the murder of a young girl. That shouldn't be funny, but Francis McDormand is funny, even though her character isn't trying to be funny. You'll laugh, and you'll likely cry too. Francis is worth the price of admission.
This comedy/drama stars Frances McDormand (in another Oscar-winning performance), Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson, Peter Dinklage and a wonderful supporting cast. Sam Rockwell is particularly notable in his role as a deputy with anger issues. This movie is sure to please fans of the genre and McDormand, portraying a very strong woman whose daughter met her end in a violent manner. Unsolved, she puts up 3 billboards in an effort to bring resolution to the case. The small Missouri town becomes polarized in support of the Sheriff, played by Harrelson. Events unfold involving the townspeople and McDormand's character. A deliciously clever script provides great performances by all.
