That face.Frances McDormand's face is one of the first things you see in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri," and it's impossible not to be struck by its pure decency.The film begins seven months later, as Hayes is driving down a little-used road near her home.Willoughby (Woody Harrelson) comes to visit Mildred, and he's a decent and caring guy.If one were looking for tell-tale signs that "Three Billboards" was written by a playwright, one might mention that the town of Ebbing seems populated by only a few characters – as in a play.Most of "Three Billboards" takes place in the present, but there is one brief flashback to Mildred's life before the murder.There's no better time than right now for a high-profile movie led by a meaty, complicated female character and no better actress than McDormand to take it on.
