    Frances McDormand completely disappears into this character who seems rich with emotion and fraught with anger. This film is refreshingly original in many ways but ultimately slightly trite in its message. Nonetheless, it is chock full of great scenes one after another. The surprises keep coming and the film doesn’t overstay it’s welcome or go off course.

    It’s certainly an interesting film — and one aimed squarely at the state of political discourse — but it didn’t quite reach the level of fascinating.

    4.5 stars out of 5 (and at least one Oscar nomination for McDormand, maybe a second one for Rockwell)

    Much recommended, this is one of my fave movies of 2017. Frances McDormand is absolutely fantastic, and so are Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell. Hell, I never even recognized Sam Rockwell - all I saw was an incompetent, lazy, momma's policeboi! The movie deals with a painful subject and although funny at times, personally I could hardly keep the underlying theme out of my mind. Mildred is bitter, harsh and impulsive, showing no grace and no acquiescence in her loss, with which victims' families are so often displayed in popular movies (that's why I loved her character). There's drama, comedy and suspense in varying degrees, keeping it real. There's character growth, at times clichéd (I decided to shut my eyes and accept Dixon's change for what it is). There are other, less prominent but superbly likeable characters like Red Welby, Chief Willoughby and James ("the midget"). Just watch it and see for yourself. 1 month 2 weeks ago

    A script of pure genius. Frances McDormand was absolutely enthralling, while Sam Rockwell is side-splittingly hilarious.

    One thing that bothered me was the scene of spoiler It was really unnecessary, strange, and out of place.

    But overall, outstanding. 5/5
