Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri tells the story of what follows when grieving mother Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand), angered by the stalled investigation into the rape and murder of her daughter, rents three billboards to demand progress from local police. An action-packed, at times moving, and often (darkly) hilarious story proceeds.
Post screening discussion with Henry Roe
Among other things, the film explores the creative possibilities of grief and anger, the divergent power relations between citizens and police, and the redemptive consequences of taking action. In particular, our discussion will focus on the way that socially marginalised individuals may frequently be better positioned to know what justice requires, though worse positioned to achieve it.
