Event Description

Cinema Feature: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, MO

Vengeance As a Path of Transformation

In this riveting examination of how injustice demands an accounting, director Martin McDonagh (In Bruges, Seven Psychopaths) tells the story of Mildred Hayes, a mother grieving the murder of her teenage daughter who had been raped, killed and set on fire seven months before. Played with a breathtaking mixture of fury and loss by the famed actress, Frances McDormand (Fargo), Mildred is incensed by the failure of the Ebbing police department and its chief, Bill Willoughby (a superb Woody Harrelson), to make any progress in apprehending her daughter’s killer. She rents three billboards on the sparsely traveled road where her daughter’s body was discovered, unveils them on Easter Sunday, and uses them to publicly shame Chief Willoughby for his inaction. As an avenging angel, Mildred’s anger and resolve become an almost numinous force that jars the small town and incites the ire of many. This is especially the case with one of Chief Willoughby’s deputies, a racist cop named Dixon, who acted with revelation by Sam Rockwell (Green Mile, Moon). What follows is a poignant, unsparing, yet tender story of collisions between people’s lives in which they become more understood to themselves and by each other. Winner in 2018 of two Academy Awards, (Best Actress for Frances McDormand and Best Supporting Actor for Sam Rockwell), this extraordinary film resonates deeply with the new accountability that women now require and the transformation in awareness this promises for both sexes
