4.5/5- I saw this film last year but it has only recently come out on general release. This is an excellent film that revolves around a mum (Frances McDormand) who sets up three billboards that directly questions the local police chief (Woody Harrelson) as to why the killer of her daughter has not been brought to justice. The comedy is well toned but never overshines the dark subject matter. The film boasts a superb supporting cast of Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage and John Hawkes. You never know which way the story is going to go. You can get two or three judgements on each character once you see the situation from their point of view. This was one of my favourite films of last year. I urge you to go and see it.
