Mother superior: it’s been a great year for on-screen mums

All too often they are simply angels or monsters. But in a terrible year for women in the film industry, there have been some refreshingly complex mothers roles from The Florida Project to the forthcoming Lady Bird and Three Billboards …

At a screening I went to recently, one of the biggest laughs came when the lead character, a 58-year-old grieving mother, drilled a small hole into the hand of a dentist. No, not nice. But honestly, he was being inexcusably patronising.

The film was the Oscar-buzzy Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and the grieving mother was Mildred Hayes, played by Frances McDormand at her finest since Fargo. Mildred’s daughter was raped and murdered seven months earlier. Furious at the police’s failure to arrest the killer, she rents three billboards the size of double-decker buses outside her small town, Ebbing, Missouri, to shame the local sheriff (Woody Harrelson) into action.

SAG Nominations: 16 Biggest Snubs and Surprises

SAG Nominations: 16 Biggest Snubs and Surprises
This year’s Oscar race is still as undecided as a swing state voter. On Wednesday, the Screen Actors Guild nominations failed to offer much clarity. Fox Searchlight’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” led with four nominations, more than any other film. However, other sure bets — such as “Shape of Water,” “Dunkirk,” and “The Post” — were left out of the best SAG ensemble category, usually a predicator of things to come at the Academy Awards.

On the TV side, the SAG Awards has a spotty track record when it comes to recognizing new shows. Last year, the group embraced “Stranger Things” (and did so again). This year, it also bestowed plenty of love to “Glow” and “Ozark,” two of the buzziest shows from Netflix. But in doing so, it snubbed critically acclaimed new offerings like Amazon’s “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” as well as Showtime’s “Smilf” — both of which picked up multiple Golden Globe nominations.

SAG Awards TV Predictions 2018: Why ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Glow’ Could Disrupt the Race

SAG Awards TV Predictions 2018: Why ‘The Deuce’ and ‘Glow’ Could Disrupt the Race
The Golden Globes are traditionally TV’s awards disrupters. With so many new shows nominated, it elevates them long enough to (potentially) make a difference at the Emmys. But the SAG Awards are a more telling barometer of industry enthusiasm.

Actors make up a large chunk of the TV Academy membership — much more so than the 80-odd members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — which means seeing what they’re rewarding in December can often predict what might be a player when Emmy season begins next spring.

With so many shows launching in April to take advantage of Emmy voting, series that premiere in the fall need Globes and SAG Awards love to keep buzz alive through the winter and into the spring. Shows like “The Deuce,” “Glow,” “Ozark,” “Mindhunter,” “Godless,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” and “Smilf” are aiming for a little extra attention right now.

Golden Globes Nominations: First-Timers Break Through

Golden Globes Nominations: First-Timers Break Through
Every awards group has their trademark quirks, and the HFPA loves nothing more than anointing the wunderkinds. And this year didn’t disappoint: On the TV side, voters embraced Showtime’s “Smilf” and Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”; in film, breakouts included Margot Robbie, Daniel Kaluuya, and Timothée Chalamet.

Big Little Lies” has a big little lead at the Golden Globes. The HBO series, which already won eight Primetime Emmys in September, now heads into the 2018 Globes with six nominations, more than any other program.

The “Big Little Lies” nomination haul comes just days after HBO confirmed that a second season of the show is now in the works. Behind it is FX’s “Feud: Bette & Joan,” which has four nods; then Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” NBC’s “This Is Us,” and FX’s “Fargo,” with three apiece.

Review: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017)

Despite not getting its full UK release until January, a constant buzz has been building around Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri for almost a year. The rave reviews from the London and Toronto film festivals have heralded its arrival for a variety of reasons.

That trailer, featuring a most foul-mouthed Frances McDormand as grieving mother out for justice Mildred Hayes, announced that the film was out to shock, while devoted fans of In Bruges and the less acclaimed but no less memorable Seven Psychopaths hungrily awaited the return of director Martin McDonagh. After seeing both return to action, it’s good to see a film live up to the hype.

The story goes that after months of zero progress in the investigation of the brutal murder of her daughter, Mildred seeks to force local police chief Willoughby’s (Woody Harrelson) hand by calling him out via three advertising boards stationed

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri – Review

Frances McDormand gives her best performance since Fargo over two decades ago in Three Billboards Outside Ebbibg, Missouri which, despite its cumbersome title, is one of the best films of 2017. She plays Mildred Hayes, a middle-aged divorcee who, out of grief and frustration, rents three dilapidated billboards outside the sleepy burg of Ebbing, Missouri (look it up – it’s one town over from Blaine) and has them decked with incriminating messages; “Raped While Dying”,“And Still No Arrests”, and “How Come, Chief Willoughby?” Mildred is basically declaring war on Ebbing’s Police Chief, William Willoughby (Woody Harrelson), but the locals are incensed at her, mostly because the Chief is not only widely beloved, but he’s also dying of pancreatic cancer. Mildred doesn’t care what her neighbors think or of Willoughby’s fine character and impending death. She’s just angry because several months have passed and not enough

Signs of the Times: Inside 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri'
Martin McDonagh can't recall exactly where he was when he first saw the signs. The 47-year-old award-winning playwright and filmmaker thinks it might have been Florida. Maybe it was Georgia. Or possibly Alabama or even Mississippi; the bus he was on hit all of them on its route, so he can't be 100-percent sure. Back in the late Nineties and the mid-aughts, McDonagh always liked to take cars or trains or buses when he had to get from one place to the next in the U.S., if time allowed; having grown up in London,

53rd Chicago International Film Festival Review – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017)

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, 2017.

Written and Directed by Martin McDonagh.

Starring Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage, Abbie Cornish, John Hawkes, Samara Weaving, Caleb Landry Jones, Lucas Hedges, Kathryn Newton, Kerry Condon, Amanda Warren, Zeljko Ivanek, Clarke Peters, and Sandy Martin.

Synopsis:

In this darkly comic drama, a mother personally challenges the local authorities to solve her daughter’s murder, when they fail to catch the culprit.

Mark Twain once wrote that “Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured”, which is true and a lesson the residents of the titular town of Ebbing, Missouri will come to realize. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri isn’t like the typical murder mystery where once a case is forced back into the eyes of the public and law enforcement, overlooked clues from
