This is a movie made after a book of the same name. The book is a real life biography, but reads like a fictional novel. It (the book) is entertaining and funny, has elements of the fancy attractive worlds of money, investment, drugs, and crazy parties. The guy made it big, lead a wild life, then lost it all. We’re talking about making a million bucks a week kind of money. Craziness like using dwarfs as throw darts, wearing cash into Switzerland, and sinking Coco Chanel’s yacht.
I never really finished reading the book, it was just too long. And the stuff written there, while true and real, were a bit too delusional for me to honestly believe and keep reading. But, it’s a book I continue to read in segments over time.
Leonardo DiCaprio plays Jordan Belfort, with Jonah Hill and Matthew McConaughey as his crazy business partner and lawyer. Oh and the movie is directed by Martin Scorsese, like you needed any more convincing to watch. It comes out this November.
