Film Review Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri

Frances McDormand stars in a scene from "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri." 

While not quite as strong of a lock as Gary Oldman for Best Actor, Frances McDormand appears to have wrapped up the Best Actress award for her amazing turn as the still-grieving mother of a murdered child in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri." Her grief turns to fiery comeuppance-seeking activism, and McDormand nails it every step of the way. In another year, Sally Hawkins would be getting plenty of talk for "The Shape of Water," given she plays a mute woman and has virtually no lines, save for a dream sequence. But this is McDormand's to win, and would be her first since "Fargo" more than 20 years ago.
