The Wolf of Wall Street
Martin Scorsese and star Leonardo DiCaprio tell a true story of unstoppable Wall Street greed in this critically acclaimed black comedy. Nominated for five Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actor for DiCaprio, and Best Supporting Actor for Jonah Hill.
Money. Power. Women. Drugs. Temptations: for the taking. The threat of authority: irrelevant. No, this isn't Martin Scorsese revisiting the violent mafia world of Goodfellas and Casino -- this is the world of high finance.
New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) goes from dreaming the American dream to embodying the ultimate of financial greed in this true tale of late 1980s Wall Street. Founder of the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont in his early 20s, Belfort's unapologetic excess, success, and affluence warranted him the title "The Wolf of Wall Street." For Jordan and his wolf pack, modesty was quickly deemed overrated and more was never enough.
A biting satire told with wit, style, and non-stop energy, The Wolf of Wall Street combines a top notch supporting cast (including Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Jean Dujardin, and Kyle Chandler), a biting screenplay by Terrence Winter ("Boardwalk Empire"), and the best of Scorsese's signature style. DiCaprio is once again captivating in a stunningly snarky performance with a physicality and bravado that is both predatory and hilariously comic.
