Plot summary

What is Joker movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Joker" movie plot summary.

Party clown and aspiring stand-up comedian Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) lives with his mother, Penny (Frances Conroy), in Gotham City, which is rife with crime and unemployment. Arthur suffers from a neurological disorder that causes him to laugh at inappropriate times, depending on social services for medication. After being attacked by delinquents, Arthur's co-worker Randall (Glenn Fleshler) gives him a gun for self-defense. Arthur pursues a relationship with his neighbor, single mother Sophie Dumond (Zazie Beetz), and invites her to his upcoming stand-up routine at a nightclub.
While entertaining at a children's hospital, Arthur's gun falls out of his pocket. Arthur is fired when Randall lies to their manager that the gun was Arthur's own. On the subway, still in clown makeup and depressed by the layoff, Arthur is ridiculed and beaten by three drunk businessmen of Wayne Enterprises after he laughed at their attempted harassment of a woman; he shoots two of them in self-defense and murders the third as he attempts to flee. The killings are condemned by billionaire mayoral candidate Thomas Wayne (Brett Cullen), who calls those envious of more successful people "clowns". Demonstrations against Gotham's rich begin, with protesters donning clown masks in Arthur's image. Funding cuts shut down the social service program, leaving Arthur without his therapy and medication.
Sophie attends Arthur's stand-up routine, which goes poorly; he laughs uncontrollably, and his jokes fall flat. Arthur intercepts a letter from Penny to Thomas, alleging that he is Thomas's illegitimate son, and berates his mother for hiding the truth. Arthur goes to Wayne Manor, where he meets Thomas's young son Bruce, but flees after a scuffle with family butler Alfred Pennyworth (Douglas Hodge). Following a visit from two police detectives investigating the train murders, Penny suffers a stroke and is hospitalized. Arthur's idol, popular talk show host Murray Franklin (Robert De Niro), mocks Arthur by showing clips from the comedy routine on his show.
