"The Wolf Of Wall Street" is a true story of the outlandish rise and non-stop pleasure-hunting descent of Jordan Belfort, the New York stockbroker who, along with his merry band of brokers, makes a gargantuan fortune by defrauding investors out of millions.
Belfort transforms from a righteous young Wall Street newcomer to a thoroughly corrupted stock-pumper and IPO cowboy. Having quickly amassed an absurd fortune, Jordan pumps it back into an endless array of aphrodisiacs: women, Quaaludes, coke, cars, his supermodel wife and a legendary life of aspiration and acquisition without limits.
But even as Belfort's company, Stratton Oakmont, soars sky-high into extremes of hedonistic gratification, the SEC and the FBI are zeroing in on his empire of excess.
Leonardo DiCaprio is up for trophies at the MTV Movie Awards, including Best Male Performance, Best Shirtless Performance and Best-Onscreen Duo with Jonah Hill for his turn as bad boy stockbroker Jordan Belfort.
The film itself is nominated for eight awards.
