The movie begins with three derelict billboards on a rural road fallen into disuse because of a freeway. A woman named Mildred played by Frances McDormand has a plan for them. I'm glad I knew nothing about it before watching because I enjoyed how the characters transformed and how played with my expectations. It explores the aftermath of a horrible event and other horrible events and how people in an imaginary small southern town respond. Seems to reflect the frustration and rage of so many people these days. Yet some hope for humanity lingers. Or maybe that is just my hope.
