If TWOWS were to be described in one word, it would be insane. The film is based on the memoirs of Jordan Belfort, a Wall Street stockbroker who engaged in rampant corruption,fraud and money laundering as the head of his firm Stratton Oakmont.

The film depicts the hard drug usage, explicit sexual content and moral ambiguity that were all part of the craziness which defined Stratton Oakmont. It held the record for the most number of times the f-word was used in a movie-569.  It featured hilarious scenes, and at the same time explored the rise of Belfort, who used his cunning and excellent salemanship to con investors out of millions of dollars,

The film was nominated for five Academy Awards,including Best Picture,Best Director,Best Actor for Leonardo di Caprio,Best Supporting Actor for Jonah Hill, and Best Adapted Screenplay.
