See ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’

You can vastly improve your day this Blue Monday by getting lost in the best films of this Awards Season which are currently being screened across the country. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri was released in cinemas at the end of last week, with many screenings completely sold out due to it being tipped for the Oscar. Having already won 4 major awards at the Golden Globes, it’s a must-see.

What? Expect to see unlikely heroine Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand) kicking schoolchildren in the crotch and petrol-bombing police stations in this dark comedy about one mother’s fight for justice. The grieving mother takes her local police force to task after they fail to catch her teenage daughter’s killers by plastering her messages of accusation across three billboards. Trouble ensues. This won the People’s Choice award at Toronto Film Festival, often an indicator of big success to follow come awards season.

What the critics say: ‘A quirky emotional puzzle put together by a trickster poet. It’s far from a masterpiece, yet it holds you, it adds up, and it’s something to see.’ Owen Gleiberman, Variety
