Movie Review ~ Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017)

Image result for three billboards outside ebbing missouri

My son called this afternoon to tell me he had watched a great movie and he knew I was going to love it.  So I watched the movie and he was right.

This story has so many comedic elements to keep it from becoming unappealingly maudlin and the quirky characters are meant to be loved, liked, or hated in turn.  I felt this for each character.

The trailer tells the basic plot quite well.  Be prepared for some violence and coarse language.
