Award-winning actress Frances McDormand (Fargo) delivers a stunningly powerful performance in this darkly comic drama that has been hailed as one of the year’s best films. A murdered girl’s defiant mother (McDormand) boldly paints three local signs with a controversial message, igniting a furious battle with a volatile cop (Sam Rockwell) and the town’s revered chief of police (Woody Harrelson.)
. After seven months have passed without a culprit in her daughter's murder case, Mildred Hayes makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at Bill Willoughby, the town's revered chief of police. When his second-in-command Officer Jason Dixon, an immature mother's boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing's law enforcement is only exacerbated..

When the main character, Mrs. ____ chewed out the preacher with multile F bombs I quickly lost interest, but I can visualize after that, how the liberal media types would get off on all of that. I was that close to turning it off then, but I could not get to the remote control fast enough. Looks like it had good potential, but "bombed" to me.
Many bad words are said in this movie so I didn’t like it.
Well acted by EVERYONE. Truly worth watching!
Thought it would be better. Did have some interesting ways about it.
But ignore that. The film has a very dry wit that is still able to draw you into the story. I was very apprehensive going into this on what to expect and was very surprised by everyone’s performance in it. If you sat through “Fargo” or “Wilson” and liked them, this is better, in my opinion. I hope you give it a chance and like it too.
This movie was unexpected and jaw dropping. Would reccomend for others.
One of the worst movies I’ve seen. Don’t waste your time. Nothing special about this film at all.
There was no ending... left in the dark
Top Shelf! Great acting by all parties. Highly recommend.
Only reason this movie won anything is it’s liberal undertones. Super boring.
Im not sure why some think this is a SJW movie.... it is far from it. Its about a grieving mother who does what she thinks she needs to do in order to find justice. I hate SJW stuff and this movie isn't that, very good story and interesting characters who have challenges to overcome. Rent it or buy it you wont be disappointed.
I was skeptical, but this movie had everything. I recommend it.
I don't even know where to begin. Every character held their own, was incredibly well written, and brought to life by the cast. I cried, I laughed, I felt for each of the characters. No wonder this movie has had so much buzz. Truly a "must see".
The stories of a few towns people all intertwine in this movie. I would say this is one of the greatest dramas I have ever seen in my life. I was hoping for a different ending but this did not take away from the story AT ALL.
Interesting for me that this is getting such "great" reviews. I found it pedantic and predictable. And as usual, the director's cowardly ending. It is watchable but only once and somewhat disappointing after all the hype. The characters are incomplete and contradictory, and the racist deputy is only a caricature. Nothing substantive in this at all.
this one didn’t hit me like it did with others who loved this movie. Thought it was really boring.
We thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It was a little dark and the bad language was somewhat thick, but as long as you don’t mind you will enjoy it. There are some absolutely hilarious parts.
This should have won best picture
Just about the worst film I have ever seen. I wish I could get a refund. I had to leave the room after about a 45 minutes. Felt that I was lured into it by the great cast, only to be disappointed by a defective screen play. Zero stars.
A complex thriller that’s definitely one of the best ever. Great performances.
