'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri' (Nov. 10th)
For those who believe Frances McDormand (Fargo, Olive Kitteridge) can do
anything, here's more proof. Anglo-Irish playwright-turned-filmmaker Martin McDonagh (In Bruges) wrote the lead role expressly for the Oscar-winning actress, who plays Mildred Hayes, the mother of a murdered teen daughter who takes action against the
lazy police in her hometown. How, you ask? By using three
billboards to advertise the local law-enforcement officers' incompetence. Expect fireworks.
