Sometimes, being polite just doesn’t quite cut the mustard. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is a brilliant new film from British writer/director Martin McDonagh which tests this thesis from all angles, showcasing the actions of a bitter local resident and the challenge she throws down to the local police constabulary.

Frances McDormand stars as lone female avenger Mildred, who buys up the space on three musty old billboards to ask why the local sheriff has failed to make inroads into the case of her dead daughter who was raped and murdered one year back.

In this expletive-ridden issue, we explore what it means to abide by the law, and what it means to crave justice. We spoke to the talented people behind the film and discovered the clues to bringing an intricate script to life – and the intricacies of playing a police officer on screen.
