Frances McDormand gives a mesmerising performance in Martin McDonagh’s critically lauded follow-up to Seven Psychopaths.
It’s been seven months since the murder of Mildred Hayes’ daughter, yet the local police department have failed to find those responsible.
Wracked by grief and frustrated by the lack of results, Mildred takes out ad space on three billboards accusing chief of police William Willoughby of ineptitude.
When Willoughby’s impulsive deputy gets involved, things spiral violently out of control.
This screening is in partnership with University of Leicester as part of their Criminology Film Season. The screening will include an intro, and be followed by a Q&A.
