by Todd Phillips Gala Premieres

Gotham, 1981. A clown-for-hire by day, Arthur Fleck strives to be a stand-up comic at night... but finds that the joke always seems to be on him. He’s out of tune with everyone around him, as evidenced by his inappropriate laughter, which gains momentum as he attempts to contain it, exposing him to further ridicule. Arthur, who devotes himself to caring for his fragile mother, seeks out every father figure he’s never had, from wealthy businessman Thomas Wayne to TV host Murray Franklin. Caught in a cyclical existence teetering on the precipice of reality and madness, one bad decision brings about a chain reaction of escalating, ultimately deadly, events. Together with his leading actor Joaquin Phoenix, director Todd Phillips creates a complex and compelling portrait of the legendary DC comic villain.
