There are few cinematic occasions in the calendar year quite like the release of the new Martin Scorsese film. With an almost spotless track record – showing no signs of slowing down, with his latest picture Hugo taking home five Academy Awards – Scorsese returns with The Wolf of Wall Street, with his golden boy Leonardo DiCaprio taking on yet another starring role.
Based on the true story of Jordan Belfort (DiCaprio) – we look over an incredible set of events that took place in the 90s, that saw this affluent stockbroker with the world of his feet, move dramatically towards a life of crime. Also starring Matthew McConaughey, Jonah Hill and Margot Robbie, the film promises to continue on the fine form of the man in the director’s chair, delving in to a world all too pertinent, with financial ruin and corruption at the heart of this eagerly anticipated crime caper. With a couple of Golden Globe nominations already to its name, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see this film pick up a handful at the Oscars too.
