In a year of strong women on screen, Frances McDormand plays one of the strongest – a bereaved mother who resorts to drastic action to bring her daughter's killer to justice in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri".McDormand seems guaranteed an Oscar nomination for her role in Martin McDonagh's witty, visceral drama, which premiered Monday at the Venice Film Festival. In the film, Mildred's quest brings all the rage in her small town boiling to the surface.Like those films, "Three Billboards" is darkly funny, but it is also surprisingly moving, as the plot and characters develop in unexpected directions.McDonagh said the inspiration for the film came from real billboards he saw during a bus journey in the U.S. 20 years ago bearing a message not unlike that in the movie, "painful and dark and tragic".
