Forever alone in a crowd, Arthur Fleck’s disconnect with reality is the origin story of the infamous DC villain who began as just a man struggling to find his way in Gotham’s fractured society. Longing for any light to shine on him, he tries his hand as a stand-up comic, but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty and, ultimately, betrayal, Arthur makes one bad decision after another that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty, allegorical character study. Directed by Todd Phillips. Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Robert De Niro, and Francis Conroy.
