Practically every character in this movie is a money grubbing, morally bankrupt, substance abuser and, sadly, they are based on real people. Their leader is Jordan Belfort, played beautifully by Leonardo DiCaprio, a seemingly regular guy from humble beginnings, who takes easily to what he considers the good life after figuring out how to profit wildly by getting people to invest in the stock market. Belfort comes off as an oily salesman but somehow has legions of devotees who worship the dollar as much as he does. With great wealth comes unbelievable debauchery and excess and the inevitable fall. Although this movie is rife with serious, dramatic and sometimes filthy scenes, it also has some of the funniest scenes ever put on film. Check Our Catalog
