Cost: Free
WUD Film presents a free screening of Joker (2019).

USA | 122 minutes | R | DCP | Dir. Todd Phillips

"Joker" centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips' exploration of Arthur Fleck, who is indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of 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.

"The super-villain origin story to beat all origin stories," - Peter Howell, Toronto Star
