An aspiring comedian becomes increasingly unstable after funding for his psychiatric support is curtailed.

Forever alone in a crowd, failed comedian Arthur Fleck seeks connection as he walks the streets of Gotham City. Arthur wears two masks – the one he paints for his day job as a clown, and the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel like he’s part of the world around him. Isolated, bullied and disregarded by society, Fleck begins a slow descent into madness as he transforms into the criminal mastermind known as the Joker.

Thrilling origin story of the iconic arch nemesis from DC Comics, starring Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz and Robert De Niro. Todd Phillips’ exploration of a man disregarded by society is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.
