    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    ★★★★

    Well I finally saw it and I’ve only just starting to form my opinion in my head. There's no doubt in my mind this is great movie and I thoroughly enjoyed it, but it suffers with its script with a lot of obvious inconsistencies and characters that don't quite add up.
