Synopsis by Maggie Sadler
In an unsettling origin story, Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) exists on the fringes of society and is utterly ignored by others. His outcast existence begins to take a toll on his mental state, his narrative an unnerving study on the extent to which a person can unravel. Written and directed by Todd Phillips, co-starring Robert De Niro.
