Movie scripts with intriguing tales about the production, cast, writer, director
The Wolf of Wall Street is a 2013 black comedy directed by Martin Scorsese, based on Jordan Belfort’s memoir of the same name, and the script was written by Terence Winter.
Revered filmmaker Martin Scorsese directs the story of New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio). From the American dream to corporate greed, Belfort goes from penny stocks and righteousness to IPOs and a life of corruption in the late 80s. Excess success and affluence in his early twenties as founder of the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont warranted Belfort the title – “The Wolf of Wall Street.” Money. Power. Women. Drugs. Temptations were for the taking and the threat of authority was irrelevant. For Jordan and his wolf pack, modesty was quickly deemed overrated and more was never enough.

About the Grandmothers Of The Disappeared
When Argentina’s military overthrew Peron’s government, they abducted any suspected opponents, and hundreds of children were either kidnapped along with their parents or born in captivity. Early in the reign of terror, a human rights organization called the “Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo” was founded.
These grandmothers kept a vigil in the plaza across from the military offices, picketing for the return of their children and grandchildren. Their natural dignity made them a powerful symbol of resistance. But they were more than that–they were a fully operational intelligence organization, gathering an enormous amount of evidence about the fate of the disappeared.
The geneticist is Nancy, about 35, attractive, affable and idealistic. And when she sets her sights on a worthy goal, she puts her very heart and soul and endless supply of vitality into achieving it. She’s a well respected researcher and professor at UC Berkeley.
