Synopsis

Arthur Fleck is an aspiring stand-up comic living in Gotham City who cannot seem to catch a break. Suffering from a condition that makes him break out into maniacal laughter whenever he is anxious, Arthur’s fragile mental state becomes unstable after he is told his funding for psychiatric support is going to be cancelled. With his life on the edge, Arthur adopts a new persona as ‘the Joker’ and turns to a life of crime that will see him rise to the fame he always craved. One of fiction’s most famous villains gets an origin story in this dark comic-book adaptation that asks questions of mental illness, fame, crime and social behaviour.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
