Event film released a few years ago, the Wolf of Walls Street is a film with Leonardo DiCaprio. The latter delivered an incredible performance in the film, praised by all critics. What to make a movie night at home thanks to Netflix?
What is the story?
Leonardo DiCaprio plays Jordan Belfort, a stockbroker. The story begins when Jordan works at RF Rotschild in the early 1980s. But the stock market crash of 1987 will make the company go bankrupt. Unemployed, he switched to a small brokerage firm. But after experiencing Wall Street, he was not interested in a company on Long Island.
He eventually meets Donnie Azoff, (Jonah Hill) who works in a completely different industry. Together they set up a brokerage firm. But they start taking shortcuts and use unconventional methods. Not to say illegal or criminal. But it makes them a lot of money. And the FBI starts to take an interest.
As the months and years go by, the peaceful life in the suburbs turns into a life of debauchery, on yachts, with prostitutes, alcohol and drugs. The money flows freely. Why deprive yourself of it?
But the FBI is always on their trail. And we suspect that between the policeman's hangups and the broker's debauchery, it is only a game whose end is already known...
It's not unlike another Leo film, Catch Me If You Can, also available on Netflix.
However, it is worth watching it to the end to know the outcome and if there is repentance of the main protagonist!

Other actors in this 2013 Paramount Pictures production include Jonah Hill, Margot Robbie (Suicide Squad), Jean Dujardin (as the crooked Swiss banker), Jon Favreau (from Avengers), Jon Bernthal (The Punisher). In short, everything you need to make a real Hollywood success!
