4. 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri'
Anglo-Irish playwright Martin McDonagh finds his
cinematic sweet spot in writing and directing this sorrowful and savagely funny look
at a small-town dynamo (Frances McDormand) who rents billboards to rage at the
police for not solving the rape and murder of her teen daughter. McDormand and
McDonagh, a match forged in fire, catch the helplessness and fury we're all
feeling right now.
