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.

“You feel like you’ve been on a journey, and that McDonagh has led us through the paces and pleasures of a three-act story in a stylized, postmodern way (…) It holds you, it adds up, and it’s something to see.” Owen Gleiberman: Variety
“Blisteringly funny and richly textured (…) A stupendous showcase for the formidable gifts of McDormand (…) McDonagh’s peerless gift for zinging, curse-laden dialogue is in full flower here” David Rooney: The Hollywood Reporter
“A film that carries its weary nihilism with a surprisingly light touch (…) McDormand is an absolute force of nature (…) Woody Harrelson brings a hangdog soulfulness (…) Rockwell shines” Ben Croll: IndieWire
