Martin McDonagh’s darkly comic drama, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri will receive its UK premiere as the Closing Night Gala of the 61st BFI Film Festival on the 15th of October 2017.

After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes makes a bold move, painting three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby, the town’s revered chief of police. When his second-in-command Officer Dixon, an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing’s law enforcement is only exacerbated.
