Martin Scorsese Heckled at Academy Screening for The Wolf of Wall Street

Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street, which is a film that tells the story of a New York stockbroker who refuses to cooperate in a large securities fraud case involving corruption on Wall Street, is currently getting raves and praises from critics, but the recent Academy screening proves that it's not universally loved, as some senior members in attendance at the event actually heckled the director during the screening.

The main complaints of some of the Academy's older members has to do with the film's sex-and-drug-oriented content. Actress Hope Holiday has posted a less than pleasant account of the evening at her Facebook page:

“Last night was torture at the Academy,” said Holiday. “The Wolf Of Wall Street - three hours of torture.

"Same disgusting crap over and over again - after the film they had a discussion which a lot of us did not stay for.”

"The elevator doors opened and Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese and a few others got out. Then a screenwriter ran over to them and started screaming, 'Shame on you'. Disgusting."
