The movie The Wolf Of Wall Street is the fifth big screen collaboration between Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese; following Gangs Of New York, The Aviator, The Departed and Shutter Island. Leonardo DiCaprio was nominated for the Best Actor Oscar for his roles in his first three Martin Scorsese movies.
By day he made thousands of dollars a minute. By night he spent it as fast as he could, on drugs, sex, and international globe-trotting. From the binge that sank a 170-foot motor yacht, crashed a Gulfstream jet, and ran up a $700,000 hotel tab, to the wife and kids who waited for him at home, and the fast-talking, hard-partying young stockbrokers who called him king and did his bidding, here, in his own inimitable words, is the story of the ill-fated genius they called.
In the 1990s Jordan Belfort, former kingpin of the notorious investment firm Stratton Oakmont, became one of the most infamous names in American finance: a brilliant, conniving stock-chopper who led his merry mob on a wild ride out of the canyons of Wall Street and into a massive office on Long Island. Now, in this astounding and hilarious tell-all autobiography, the Leonardo DiCaprio character, Jordan Belfort, narrates a story of greed, power, and excess no one could invent.
Reputedly the prototype for the film Boiler Room, Stratton Oakmont turned microcap investing into a wickedly lucrative game as Belfort’s hyped-up, coked-out brokers browbeat clients into stock buys that were guaranteed to earn obscene profits-for the house. But an insatiable appetite for debauchery, questionable tactics, and a fateful partnership with a breakout shoe designer named Steve Madden would land Belfort on both sides of the law and into a harrowing darkness all his own.
From the stormy relationship Belfort shared with his model-wife as they ran a madcap household that included two young children, a full-time staff of twenty-two, a pair of bodyguards, and hidden cameras everywhere-even as the SEC and FBI zeroed in on them-to the unbridled hedonism of his office life, here is the extraordinary story of an ordinary guy who went from hustling Italian ices at sixteen to making hundreds of millions. Until it all came crashing down.
The movie The Wolf Of Wall Street is based on the 2007 autobiography of the same name by author Jordan Belfort.
There is a huge orgy scene in The Wolf Of Wall Street, featuring numerous men and women, of which Leonardo DiCaprio is in the middle.
The Wolf Of Wall Street was originally scheduled for release on November 15, 2013 but was pushed back to December 25, 2013.
