REVIEW: The Wolf of Wall Street


The very successful stock broker  Jordan Belfort, played by actor Leonardo Dicaprio, had a mind set for earning millions. Belfort wanted fast and easy money. From the ground up, he started  a stock broking business with a few buddies. The idea of the business wasn’t to help the stock buyer, as much as it was to help grow the personal wealth of Jordan Belfort and his closest friend, Donnie.
