The film has been well received by critics and earned nominations for five Academy Awards, including nominations for Best Director and Best Picture. It has also received four BAFTA nominations, two Golden Globe nominations and a nomination for an AACTA award.
The Wolf of Wall Street has been praised and reprimanded by viewers in equal measure, mainly due to what many consider the extreme use of profanity. For example, F-bombs are dropped a record 569 times in the movie. The film also features plenty of nudity and sex, all of which have contributed to its banning in various countries.
Jordan Belfort, a newly certified stockbroker adopts a lifestyle geared towards making money, sex and cocaine as instructed by his boss Mark Hanna (Matthew McConaughey). After he loses his first job on account of the firm’s bankruptcy during Black Monday, he then start his own business dealing with penny stocks.
While these activities made him a millionaire and a hot second wife, it soon also attracted the attention of the FBI. From his rise to a filthy rich stockbroker living the high (quite literally) life, the audience also sees his fall involving crime and corruption.
