I am a big fan of director Martin Scorsese’s films and i would like to watch his latest film, The Wolf of Wall Street , a biographical dark comedy based on Jordan Belfort’s memoir of the same name. the film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Belfort, a New York stockbroker who runs a firm that engages in securities fraud and corruption on Wall Street in the 1990s. The film also features Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey and Jean Dujardin. It is the fifth collaboration between Scorsese and DiCaprio, and the second between Scorsese and Winter after Boardwalk Empire. The film has been nominated for five Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director for Scorsese, Best Adapted Screenplay for Winter, Best Actor for DiCaprio, and Best Supporting Actor for Hill. It has also been nominated for four BAFTAs, including Best Director, Best Actor and Best Adapted Screenplay, and two Golden Globe Awards, including Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. DiCaprio won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy.
It starts In 1987, after Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) becomes a stockbroker at an established Wall Street firm. His boss, Mark Hanna (Matthew McConaughey), advises him to adopt a lifestyle of sex and cocaine in order to succeed. He passes the Series 7 Exam and earns his broker’s license, only to lose his job when the firm fails after Black Monday. With the job market for stockbrokers slack, Belfort considers another career, but his wife Teresa Petrillo (Cristin Milioti) finds an advertisement for Investor Center, a Long Island boiler room which deals in penny stocks. His aggressive pitching style soon earns him a fortune. He befriends Donnie Azoff (Jonah Hill), a salesman who lives in the same apartment complex as Belfort, and they decide to open their own firm together, recruiting several of Belfort’s friends (all experienced marijuana dealers) and some co-workers from Investor Center to join them. The firm, Stratton Oakmont, soon becomes a billion-dollar company, and Belfort brings his parents, accountants “Mad” Max (Rob Reiner) and Leah Belfort (Christine Ebersole), to handle his finances.
Belfort and his employees lead a lifestyle of total debauchery with lavish parties, sex and drugs both in the workplace and in their personal lives. He begins cheating on his wife with several prostitutes, and becomes addicted to cocaine and Quaaludes. FBIagent Patrick Denham (Kyle Chandler) begins investigating Belfort and the company. At one of his parties, Belfort meets Naomi Lapaglia (Margot Robbie) and begins an affair with her that leads to him divorcing his wife. Belfort falls in love with and proposes to Lapaglia. They wed, and a few months later, have a daughter, Skylar. The FBI investigation continues, with the Securities and Exchange Commission joining in. Belfort opens a Swiss bank account with Jean-Jacques Saurel (Jean Dujardin) in the name of Naomi’s aunt Emma (Joanna Lumley). She and other non-Americans regularly carry cash to Geneva for deposit, helping Belfort launder the proceeds of Stratton’s securities frauds. The scheme is nearly exposed by an incident where Azoff gets into a fight with Brad Bodnick (Jon Bernthal), a drug dealer and friend of Belfort’s who has been helping transfer money to Switzerland.
After Bodnick is arrested, Belfort receives a call from his private investigator, who tells Belfort that his house phone has been wiretapped. Belfort, discovers Azoff talking on the phone about the laundered money. With the shadow of law enforcement hovering over them, Max attempts to convince Belfort to step down from Stratton Oakmont and escape the large amount of legal penalties. However, Belfort decides he isn’t going to be scared by the FBI, and refuses to step down. Belfort and Azoff take their wives on a yacht trip to Italy, where they learn that Emma has died of a heart attack. Over his grieving wife’s objections, Belfort orders the boat to Monaco so they can stop in Switzerland on the way to the funeral and settle the bank account, but it is capsized by a violent storm. After their rescue and before Belfort’s eyes, a plane sent to take them to Geneva explodes in midair. Belfort considers this a sign from God and decides to sober up. Two years later, Denham arrests Belfort during the filming of an infomercial. Saurel, arrested in Florida due to another scheme, has told the FBI everything. Since the case against him is overwhelming, Belfort agrees to wear a wire to gather evidence against his colleagues. He doesn’t want to rat but the FBI tells him that his sentence will be shorter if he does. Optimistic about his chances at sentencing, he attempts to reconcile with Naomi, he says they can “start fresh” Naomi however wants a divorce and sole custody of the children. This provokes a violent physical confrontation. Belfort gets high and crashes his car in the driveway while attempting to leave with Skylar. The next morning Jordan gets the wire put on him for his meeting with Azoff, then FBI Agent Denham tries to arrest Belfort…
