Varèse Sarabande: "THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI" Music by Carter Burwell


Varèse Sarabande will release the THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on November 10, and on CD November 17, 2017. The album features original music by Carter Burwell (CAROL, WONDERSTRUCK).

“Frances McDormand, can do anything,” said Burwell.  “We’ve done so many different things together, including FARGO, OLIVE KITTERIDGE and going back to BLOOD SIMPLE. Martin McDonagh, with whom I previously worked with on IN BRUGES, has similar sensibilities to me, and I’d be happy to work with him on anything.  This film really felt like getting back together with my family.”

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI is a darkly comedic drama from Academy Award® winner Martin McDonagh (IN BRUGES). After months have passed without a culprit in her daughter’s murder case, Mildred Hayes (Academy Award® winner Frances McDormand) makes a bold move, commissioning three signs leading into her town with a controversial message directed at William Willoughby (Academy Award® nominee Woody Harrelson), the town's revered chief of police. When his second-in-command Officer Dixon (Sam Rockwell), an immature mother’s boy with a penchant for violence, gets involved, the battle between Mildred and Ebbing's law enforcement is only exacerbated.

“I think that the music is really putting you in the position of Frances’s character,” Burwell explained. “I think it’s almost always what the music should be doing, helping you to see things from her point of view, when she does things that might be reprehensible, to help you understand what she’s doing.”

Carter Burwell has composed the music for more than 80 feature films, including BLOOD SIMPLE, RAISING ARIZONA, MILLER'S CROSSING, BARTON FINK, THE HUDSUCKER PROXY, ROB ROY, FARGO, THE SPANISH PRISONER, GODS AND MONSTERS, VELVET GOLDMINE, THREE KINGS, BEING JOHN MALKOVICH, O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU? (BAFTA Nominee for Film Music), BEFORE NIGHT FALLS, A KNIGHT’S TALE, THE ROOKIE, ADAPTATION, INTOLERABLE CRUELTY, NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, IN BRUGES, BURN AFTER READING, TWILIGHT, WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE (Golden Globe Nominee for Best Original Score), A SERIOUS MAN, THE BLIND SIDE, THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT, TRUE GRIT, TWILIGHT: BREAKING DAWN – PART 1 & 2, AND THE FIFTH ESTATE, MR. HOLMES, LEGEND, THE FINEST HOURS, HAIL CAESAR!, THE FAMILY FANG,  THE FOUNDER, and most recently GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN and WONDERSTRUCK.
