The story of this movie revolves around the character of Jordon Belfort who starts his career as a Wall Street broker. Under the guide of Mark Hanna, Jordon moves towards negative activities and understands earning money as his sole mission due to which he loses his job. Jordon further gets a job at a small scale brokerage firm. This small scale brokerage firm is located on long island and operates in an unfair way. Jordon manages to earn some money while working at this firm due to his determined nature and hyperactive working style. With the help of Donnie Azoff, Jordon’s neighbor, Jordon manages to start his own company. Soon the company becomes successful but as the whole idea of this company is a fraud, authorities start getting suspicious.
The story of this movie is quite intriguing and inspiring. The work of Leonardo DiCaprio is highly appreciable; indeed he is an excellent actor. There are many scenes in this movie where Leonardo displayed his flawless acting skills. Belfort is shown as the man that we would like to hate. He is fraud, he loves to indulge in negative and illegal activities, he is not faithful to his wife, etc. But overall, these traits of Belfort turn him into the most inspiring character of this movie. Throughout the movie, Belfort never ceased to amaze us with his inspiring leadership qualities. He gets a starting career job at Wall Street, he loses this job, he joins a boiler room firm, he sets up his own company and he gets successful. Although he ends up losing everything he gained over the years still his struggle is very interesting.
This movie possesses every spice of an interesting movie such as comedy, suspense, drama, sex, crime. Leonardo might be acting powerfully but without the other actors this movie might have seemed incomplete. The work of Jonah Hill, who plays the role of Donnie, is also very powerful. The element of suspense is highly intriguing as the movie takes a sudden turn and the authorities interfere into the perfect life of Jordon Belfort. Overall the movie was a very good watch and if you are searching for something different then this movie is highly recommended for you.
