Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (15) screening at the Kirkgate, Cockermouth

A darkly comic drama from Academy Award winner Martin McDonagh (IN BRUGES).

When months have passed without a culprit being identified in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award nominee Woody Harrelson), the town's revered chief of police.

When his second-in-command Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell), an immature mother's boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and the town's law enforcement is only exacerbated.

“Soaringly satisfying viewing…blistering performances and virtuosic screenwriting” - Daily Telegraph

“The movie is, by turns - and sometimes simultaneously - darkly comic, blazingly profane, flat-out hilarious and shockingly violent, not to mention flippant, tender, poetic and profound” - Wall Street Journal

“Surefire awards contender from Martin McDonagh…a renegade masterpiece” - Rolling Stone

“A startling piece of work: a perverse, comic and tragic revenge story” - Independent
