Joker

15

It’s 1981 and failed stand-up comedian Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) is struggling to find his place in Gotham City. Living with his mother (Frances Conroy), Arthur has nothing going for him. Despite his compulsive quest to make the world laugh, the people of Gotham don’t value Arthur – he is seen as nothing more than a clown.

Disregarded and ignored by society, the down-and-out comedian is driven mad. Though, his mother always told him that he should, in spite of everything, put on a happy face…

Taken down a dark path of psychotic anarchy in his pursuit for laughter, Arthur turns to crime to satisfy his ever-growing desire for chaos, quickly evolving into a criminal mastermind as he masquerades under a new name and look. Before, he thought his life was a tragedy, but now he realises it’s always been a comedy.

Completely insane, there is nothing of the old Arthur Fleck anymore – all that’s left is the Joker.

Judy

12A

Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform in a sell-out run at The Talk of the Town.

It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in 'The Wizard Of Oz', but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians, and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through.

Even her dreams of romance seem undimmed as she embarks on a courtship with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. And yet Judy is fragile. After working for 45 of her 47 years, she is exhausted; haunted by memories of a childhood lost to Hollywood; and gripped by a desire to be back home with her kids. Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love and the sheer pizzazz of "the world's greatest entertainer".
