Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri screening and Q&A with Martin McDonagh — live tweets and photos

Reading time: 19 minutes and 59 seconds

On Tuesday 5 December we hosted an advance screening of Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. The film’s writer and director Martin McDonagh then joined us to discuss his writing process, his opinion on improvisation and told us why this story had to be a film.

Martin McDonagh is an acclaimed director, screenwriter and playwright. His other feature film work includes In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths. He also wrote and directed the Oscar-winning short Six Shooter.

Damon Wise is a freelance film writer. His work has appeared in Empire, The Guardian, Variety, the Financial Times and Radio Times.

Martin commented that he enjoys having a repertory of returning actors in his projects - Sam Rockwell, Woody Harrelson and Abbie Cornish all having appeared in Seven Psychopaths, with Željko Ivanek additionally appearing in In Bruges.

The audience member was referring to the fact that characters with dwarfism appear prominently in both In Bruges and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
