Friday, January 17, 2014 by Douglas And Gordon
Happy Friday, everyone! Use our handy Douglas and Gordon weekend guide to plan what to do this weekend.
Don’t miss the ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’, premiering in cinemas today. The film is a true story of hedonistic and corrupt Wall Street stockbroker Jordan Belfort, who loses his job at a well-established firm and is forced to work his way up from the bottom selling penny stocks at a firm in Long Island. Blessed with the gift of the gab, Jordan decides to open his own firm, Stratton Oakmont, with salesman Donnie Azoff. The business goes from strength to strength, attracting the attention of tenacious FBI Agent Patrick Denham, who resolves to bring down Jordan and his booze-and-coke fuelled inner circle.
