In November, look for Tipperary native Kerry Condon in Irish writer-director Martin McDonagh’s latest twisted flick Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. McDonagh shot to fame with his Irish plays The Beauty Queen of Leenane and A Skull in Connemara. More recently he has taken his profane, violent characters to the big screen, in films such as In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths. Three Billboard stars Condon as well as Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, and John Hawkes, and is about a woman seeking revenge when she suspects the local police department is not doing all they can to capture her daughter’s murderer. ♦
