Roxbury Afternoons at the Movies: Joker (Rated R)

Join us as we watch the latest, greatest, and even some classic movies at the library. We’ll supply the movie, you bring the popcorn (or your favorite snack). Free admission!

This week's movie is Joker. "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.

Rating: R (for strong bloody violence, disturbing behavior, language and brief sexual images)
