This January, Star Movies Select HD is all set to bring to you the dark comedy crime drama film, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri. The movie that bagged seven Oscar nominations, two Oscars at the 90th Academy Awards, and three Golden Globe awards last year, is all set to capture the hearts of the Indian audiences this month.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri tells the riveting story of a mother who rents three billboards to draw attention to her daughter’s unsolved rape and murder case. Frances Dormand, who plays the role of Mildred delivers an unforgettable performance as a seething mother who seeks justice and revenge for her daughter; a role for which she won an Academy Award for Best Actresss. Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell also shine in their roles as Officer Willoughby and Officer Dixon, both securing Oscar nominations and the latter securing an Oscar award.
Balancing humour and tragedy in a profound way, the movie makes you feel all at once- humour, shock, anger and sadness. Guardian called it a ‘darkly hilarious portrait of a disenfranchised USA’ while New York Times said that Dormand ‘tears the movie open, showing what a broken heart looks like’.
Don’t miss the Indian television premiere of Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri on Star Movies Select HD on 19 January at 9 pm on Star Movies Select HD.
