Director: Martin Scorsese
Genre: Drama
Running time: 179 minutes

Jordan Belfort is a New York stockbroker who dreams of  living the American dream of being a top stock broker. He builds his profile from practically nothing, from penny stocks to IPOs and a life of corruption. The movie is set in the 1980s.
Leonardo DiCaprio plays the lead role as Belfort. His brokerage firm called Stratton Oakmont warranted Belfort the title The Wolf of Wall Street given its big success. What’s more is that Belfort was only in his 20s.

With his success came the money, power, women and drugs. Temptations were for the taking and the threat of authority was irrelevant. For Belfort and his wolf pack, modesty was quickly deemed overrated and more was never enough.
This is another movie DiCaprio is working on with respected filmmaker Martin Scorsese. The duo has collaborated on movies like Gangs of New York (2002), The Aviator (2004), The Departed (2006) and Shutter Island (2010).
Rotten Tomatoes, a respectable website of movie critics has summarised the movie as funny, self-referential, and irreverent to a fault.

“The Wolf of Wall Street finds Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio at their most infectiously dynamic,” the site reads in part. According to Scorsese, it’s DiCaprio who’s keeping him firmly planted in the director’s chair.
