Much coverage has been given to the winners at this year's Academy Awards – but what about those deserving few who were left behind in the dust?
The Wolf of Wall Street (18)
17th January 2014
Leonardo DiCaprio, Jon Favreau, Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Rob Reiner, Margot Robbie, Joanna Lumley
Scorsese and DiCaprio team up again for the blackly comic true story of a hedonistic and corrupt Wall Street stockbroker. Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a clever young man with ambition to burn. For him, greed isn't just good - it's great! Mentored by Mark Hanna (Matthew McConaugey), Belfort proceeds to tear up Wall Street during the nineties. He works hard, earning nearly a million dollars a week. And he also plays hard, enjoying a blizzard of drugs, drink, sex, parties and expensive toys. But pride comes before a fall. And Belfort's 'pump and dump' boiler room scam is about to lead to a mighty comeuppance. Adapted by 'Boardwalk Empire' creator Terence Winter from Belfort's own memoirs, this 'GoodFellas' of the financial world has been a long-cherished project for director Martin Scorsese. He also collaborates with Leonardo DiCaprio for the fifth time. Watch out too for our own Joanna Lumley in a supporting role!
