Just as I am writing this I realized that this movie title has lots of repeated letters in it. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is not your typical comedy-drama movie.
In an unresolved murder of her daughter, Mildred (Frances McDormand) to rent three billboards that caught national attention that also put the local police station to struggle. The beginning went very interesting when the billboards were put out. In this case, if you work as an advertising supplier, you don't really think what message will be delivered as long as you easily earn big bucks.
Being dubbed as the "bad girl" in the community, Mildred didn't stop in pursuing justice for her daughter. The irony that the person seeking justice was not given fair justice and her anger is felt every scene that you will be more attentive on why's and how's. You will hate her and pity her and you'll give better understanding of her feelings and what she's going through.

Given all the drama and violence, there are also scenes that you will be laughing at your seat. Her unlikely and unexpected relationships, and turn of events for people of power. There's also an issue of discrimination, not for her but for the people in the community.

Officer Dixon's (Sam Rockwell) home is also a funny place in the movie where a person in uniform bends over his dauntless mom. But in spite of a very stubborn officer, he thinks he can manage Mildred but he's wrong. He also has no means and power but amazingly redeems himself towards the end of the story.
I was broken hearted when Chief Willoughby (Woody Harrelson) has taken his life but at least he also saved himself from the negative perception of Mildred and community. He made poor choices but his letters after dying are very heartfelt.
