Tip#1240: The Recipe For Resilience, Part 46 – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

This is Day 376 of the COVID-19 pandemic here in Toronto, Canada. 

During this pandemic I started to do some surprise food gifts drop offs to friends and family. Since I know the pure joy and bliss of being on the receiving end I wanted to share that wonderful feeling with others! It’s a feeling that got me through spending Christmas holidays alone so I know these acts of kindness can help others also dealing with the isolation of this year long pandemic. 

Sharing of this uplifting energy is also a big part of the free, monthly Zoom group I’ve been hosting called High Notes Movie Club. Our recent gathering was so enjoyable and fun and some even shared how these meetings really help them feel good which they look forward to each month.

One of the attendees mentioned she liked the actress Frances McDormand in the film Nomadland but never saw her in anything before. Several of us were excited to say that McDormand had been in many great films and I immediately recommended Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. This sharing is what makes our Movie Club fun! We get to share our passion and joy for films we love. 

This attendee messaged me later that she saw the film and thought it was phenomenal. Her enthusiasm inspired me to re-watch Three Billboards and it really surprised and reminded me how fantastic this movie was and why it won Oscars for Best Actress for McDormand and Best Supporting Actor for Sam Rockwell. 

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) 

The comedy drama film, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, is about a divorced mother, Mildred Hayes (Frances McDormand), challenging local authorities to solve her daughter's murder through three bold billboard messages she purchases. This engaging and surprisingly humorous film features outstanding performances that include McDormand as well as Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Caleb Landry Jones, John Hawkes, Peter Dinklage, Samara Weaving and more.

This is one of those films that draws you in and takes you on a fantastic cinematic ride. I’d forgotten how amazing the script was and how much every character was so fleshed out and performed flawlessly. And I had forgotten how the story’s roughness, cursing and violence led to beautiful, unexpected acts of kindness that really touched my soul. 

Seeing this film again made me feel so good and lifted me up during a tough weekend of seasonal depression symptoms. And this was just one example of the positive chain reaction of sharing that originated from what happens in our High Notes Movie Club

Being in isolation doesn’t mean we have to be alone. We can lift ourselves up by lifting up others and focus on sharing. We can share favourite films we love or delicious foods that bring our taste buds joy and bliss! Acts of kindness truly has a ripple affect that happens to also bring yourself much joy. So have fun re-energizing and re-vitalizing someone today!
