Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri ★★★★

On the face of it, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri can be seen as an indictment of racism, violence and patriarchal power structures. At its core it is about guilt, revenge and reconciliation. With his clever staging, Martin McDonagh also confronts how quickly hasty judgments are made.
Above all, the acting performances of Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwall blow you away. It is also staged in a terrific way, but the film gets lost a little towards the end. Nevertheless, it is touching and exciting entertainment with depth.
