Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) lives with his frail mother, Penny Fleck (Frances Conroy), and devotes himself to caring for her. He wants to live up to her nickname for him—Happy. During the day, he paints his face and works as a clown through a service called Ha-Ha's, but he dreams of being a stand-up comic. He tries to learn from watching other comics, listening to their tone and timing in an effort to replicate it. Unfortunately, others don't relate to what he finds funny.


Insecure and awkward, Arthur has difficulty relating to others. As he struggles to find a connection in Gotham City’s fractured society, the toxic environment wears at him—the lack of compassion and empathy, the loss of civility—especially after he's bullied by teens on the street. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision after another, cementing his destiny and setting off a chain reaction of escalating events.

Lloyd is dealing with his father Jerry (Chris Cooper), who abandoned Lloyd and their family when Lloyd's mother grew ill. Now elderly, Jerry wants back into Lloyd's life, but Lloyd still carries a lot of resentment.


On that note, Lloyd travels to Pittsburgh to meet Mr. Rogers, but at every turn, he's surprised by how empathetic the man is and how in tune he is to others' problems. Lloyd soon realizes he needs more than one short interview to write his piece, because there's so much more to Fred Rogers than he first thought. And what Lloyd finds will change his life forever.

Based on the 1998 Esquire magazine article titled Can You Say...Hero? by Tom Junod.

As members of the Hitler Youth, Jojo and his friends have to learn war games and how to blow things up, but the kids aren't that adept and manage to stab themselves with the knives they're given and blow up buildings that are not meant to be blown up. When Jojo is asked to kill a rabbit but can't bring himself to do it, he earns himself the nickname "Jojo Rabbit."


Discouraged, Jojo seeks solace in his imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), who does his best to encourage the boy, while telling him stories of his own awkward youth. Meanwhile, Jojo discovers that his mother is hiding Elsa (Thomasin McKenzie), a teenage Jewish girl, in their home. Jojo doesn't know any Jews, but has heard they have horns and scales and hang from the rafters like bats. He decides not to tell the authorities, because he knows that would put his mother in danger, so instead he tries to find out all he can about Elsa, in order to gather information about Jews for the Nazis. As he does so, he has to endure Elsa's teasing, who makes quips such as, "Obviously we are demons who love money."
