Running time: 115 Mins
Feeling she is being ignored by the police, an embittered woman has a rather nasty message pasted to the billboards, which starts a chain of events that intertwines the police, her remaining son and the town in general. No one seems to be unaffected.
And there’s a dwarf.
This is a perfect movie. Nothing else needs to be said. Well, except that Sam Rockwell really shows what he’s capable of. Everyone is great, the story is gripping, and the town is perfectly bucolic.
Go see this one; you won’t regret it. No post credit scenes.
