What do you do when the local police aren’t making any progress on your daughter’s murder case? Well, you put up three huge red billboards that call out the police chief by name.
Frances McDormand stars in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, the latest film by the great Martin McDonagh (In Bruges, Seven Psychopaths). It looks like a smooth continuation of McDonagh’s previous work, which is always laced with violence, humor, profanity, and sadness.
The film’s got a pretty bonkers cast: in addition to McDormand, it features Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage, Lucas Hedges, Caleb Landry Jones, Clarke Peters, John Hawkes, and Abbie Cornish.
McDonagh is a special filmmaker, whose tonal mix, sharp tongue, and penchant for the improbable make his movies extremely memorable. So be sure to keep an eye out for this one, which is due out this year, although no specific release date has been announced.
