"Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" is a phenomenal film. It is able to convey the emotions it wants you to feel very effectively and the characters are compelling. Each character in this film has their own troubles and they come together in great fashion. The acting by Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell, and Woody Harrelson is top-notch. McDormand and Rockwell both received Oscars for their performances while Harrelson was nominated. These characters take this film's compelling story and sell it tactfully and beautifully. The mastery of the directing and cinematography makes for a very gripping motion picture. Overall, the only qualm I can nitpick with this film is the unsatisfying ending. The intensity and drama of the entire film leads us down a path towards what could be an amazingly satisfying ending, to only leave us wanting a few minutes more. However, with that being stated, the ending is left open enough for us, as the audience, to create our own ending for the film. This could have been done in a better fashion than it was, but other than this qualm, this film is fantastic. Overall, I give this film a 9/10 for its compelling story, acting, and directing.
