OFFICIAL SELECTION: Venice Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival
WINNER: Golden Lion (Best Film), Venice Film Festival

Joker centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen. Director Todd Phillips' exploration of Arthur Fleck, who is indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is a man struggling to find his way in Gotham's fractured society. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night...but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study.
