A wealthy stockbroker falls due to crime and corruption in The Wolf on Wall Street released on Friday at The Showcase in Bargeddie.

Based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, Leonardo DiCaprio plays Belfort, a Long Island penny stockbroker who served 36 months in prison for defrauding investors in the 1990s.

Along with his friend Donnie Azoff (Jonah Hill), Belfort instigated a massive securities scam which involved widespread corruption on Wall Street and in the corporate banking world.

Belfort’s memoir was adapted for the screen by The Sopranos writer and executive producer Terence Winter, while Martin Scorsese steps into the director’s chair for the first time since 2011’s Hugo.

It is the fifth collaboration between Scorsese and DiCaprio, and the second between Scorsese and Winter after Boardwalk Empire.

The Wolf on Wall Street is rated 18 and runs for 180 minutes.
