About the Soundtrack

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is an Academy Award-winning dark comedy-drama set in the small town of Ebbing, Missouri. It tells the story of Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand), a single mother who takes matters into her own hands after the local police fail to investigate her daughter's unsolved murder. In a desperate act of protest, she rents three billboards on the outskirts of town to draw attention to the case and challenge the authorities to do more. The film also stars Woody Harrelson as Chief Willoughby, Sam Rockwell as Officer Dixon, Peter Dinklage as James and Caleb Landry Jones as Red Welby. The film was written and directed by Martin McDonagh, and won two Academy Awards, including Best Actress for Frances McDormand. It was nominated for four other awards, including Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is a compelling story that explores the power of justice and forgiveness in unexpected ways. With its unforgettable characters and powerful performances, it's one of the most stirring films of recent years. The soundtrack for the film, composed by Carter Burwell, is as hauntingly beautiful as the story itself. From tender piano pieces to intense orchestral movements, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri's soundtrack is an essential part of the movie experience. It perfectly captures the emotion and intensity of every scene and provides a powerful complement to the film's narrative. The soundtrack has been described as "heartbreakingly gorgeous" and it remains one of Burwell's most acclaimed works.
