After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby, the town's revered chief of police. When his second-in-command Officer Dixon, an immature mother's boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing's law enforcement is only exacerbated.

Finally, an Oscar winner that lives up to the acclaim. I was worried that I would hate this after I was so let down by Lady Bird, but this did not disappoint.

If you didn't like Fargo, you'll like this one even less.

A really great film. It wasn't really set up like most movies, with the structure of start, story, climax, end; instead it was a roller coaster of emotions and instead of focusing just on the story, was really about the characters. I thought it was beautiful, also it had a great soundtrack. Stellar performances all around.

A very good movie. Original story line. Interesting, likable to very unlikable characters. I think the characters were honest and well portrayed, even the side characters. The conclusion was perhaps unexpected, but believable.

I just loved this movie. It was really well made with an excellent cast. My husband and I were not disappointed in this movie at all. It has been a long time since we have seen a good movie.

This quirky thing almost never does what you think it's going to. Which is oddly satisfying.

What came to mind, in part, was the cooking contest show where candidates get some weird ingredients and need to come up with something. They do, with uneven results. The results here include paydays for lots of hardworking folk in the motion picture business; as well as something for the patrons most of whom are inclined to believe they have just been treated to something wonderful.
Revenge is mine saith the Lord. In my opinion revenge is subject to the same variability as other traits. Certainly it offers an opportunity for violence here, from more characters than might be necessary. Anger is making life hard for a lot of people in this country at this time as it has in all countries at all times, starting with Cain. This works better for me as an exercise in bitterness and stubbornness.
Our possibly blameless Woody Harrelson is not really dying for anyone's sins and the cardboard characters leave the question of their redemption up to viewers.
Is it a picture of rural America? The south? I guess it is fair to say that along with ignorance, bigotry and a perceived misogyny there is a suggestion of humanity in the mix.

Real-life story of the father who inspired the Oscar-nominated film Three Billboards with his messages to the 'corrupt' police who 'botched' the case of his raped and strangled daughter (and it's not in Missouri)

Lyrics to the "Last Rose Of Summer":
'Tis the last rose of summer left blooming alone
All her lovely companions are faded and gone
No flower of her kindred, no rosebud is nigh
To reflect back her blushes and give sigh for sigh

I'll not leave thee, thou lone one, to pine on the stem
Since the lovely are sleeping, go sleep thou with them
Thus kindly I scatter thy leaves o'er the bed
Where thy mates of the garden lie scentless and dead

So soon may I follow when friendships decay
And from love's shining circle the gems drop away
When true hearts lie withered and fond ones are flown
Oh who would inhabit this bleak world alone?
This bleak world alone
