1663230_full.jpg

Winner of four Golden Globes and nominated for seven different Oscars, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri will be shown in Thalian Hall's Main Stage Theatre from Monday, January 29th, to Thursday, February 1st. The film will play Monday to Wednesday at 7pm with an additional screening on Wednesday at 4pm.

After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (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 Ebbing's law enforcement is only exacerbated.

From the Critics:

“A barn burner, a bracing shot of whiskey downed while spoiling for a fight, a cathartic wail against the zeitgeist of rape culture and state brutality. It's a rallying cry, a right hook to the jaw, and wow, does it ever hurt so good.” Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service
“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is a character study, even though the parts never stop moving -- it's wildly violent, brilliantly funny and deeply moving. And so smart.” Liz Braun, Toronto Sun
