The Real Life Wolf of Wall Street is Coming to Dubai
You might not have been able to see the movie The Wolf of Wall Street in Dubai minus the cuts but you can catch the man himself here in all his glory. Sadly, we're not talking about Leonardo DiCaprio. In fact, it's Jordan Belfort (played by Leo in The Wolf of Wall Street) who's set to visit Dubai. He'll be speaking at the 10th Arabian Business Forum on 19 May 2014.
Belfort was, as the name of the movie suggests, a Wall Street phenomenon in the 90s, making more than $50 million a year. But scandal followed! He was later found guilty of stock market manipulation and spent almost two years in jail. Following which he wrote two best-selling books, The Wolf of Wall Street and Catching the Wolf of Wall Street.
Belfort’s life and heady times as well as his fall are what The Wolf of Wall Street the film is all about. And Leo's even been nominated for an Oscar for his role.
