The film, which stars Joaquin Phoenix and Robert De Niro, tells the story of failed comedian Arthur Fleck who 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.
