10. Filmed in western North Carolina

Though set in Missouri, it was actually filmed in North Carolina, generally in the area near Asheville. The billboards were on the edge of Black Mountain, the town of Sylva was used for a lot of the locations.

Lots of movies have filmed primarily in that region of NC. Some examples: The Fugitive, Being There, Dirty Dancing, My Fellow Americans, The Hunger Games, Last of the Mohicans, Nell.

15. No idea, but the movie is based on an actual event

that took place in Texas, and I think the last of the 3 billboards is still standing with the murder still unsolved.

9. Not exactly a date flick, but, wow. You feel like you're there every minute.

No way you can predict what's going to happen, and the ending leaves possibilities wiiiiiiiide open.

Everyone took it all the way to the edge, and then some. I was impressed with Harrelson: I didn't think he was that deep.

I'd love to hear from someone who really lives in a way-off small town in the state: Is it really that bleak?

So, who thinks they find and kill the guy? Do they ever get caught and locked up?

11. Yes and I liked it, too.

Sad but enough funny parts to keep it from being too depressing. The acting was superb.

12. Yes, I was impressed with Woody Harrelson...

He's come a long way since cheers. That letter to his wife was very moving.

14. Yes, he certainly has come a long way

he's gotten a lot of good roles in the past several years. He was excellent in this movie, though

16. Excellent acting in the movie

Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, etc. Even the brief flashback appearance from the daughter was haunting.

17. Thought it was excellent and Oscar worthy...

the nominees are all so different from each other. I don't know how people can pick. I will say as much as I enjoyed Lady Bird, it doesn't strike me as Oscar worthy for the movie as a whole. Individual actors and writing/directing yes.
