Everest/Steve Jobs/Wolf of Wall Street/Theory of Everything/... - Baltasar Kormákur [BLU-RAY]
Collection of five films based on true events. 'Everest' (2015) tells the story of the 1996 climbing expedition in which two groups, led by Rob Hall (Jason Clarke) and Scott Fischer (Jake Gyllenhaal), attempt to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Although the groups have plentiful experience, nothing can prepare them for the freak storm which hits during the expedition. 'Steve Jobs' (2015) stars Michael Fassbender as the titular American businessman and co-founder of multinational tech company Apple who sacrifices his personal life and relationships to transform Apple from a dwindling loss-making organisation into a key player in the digital revolution. In 'The Wolf of Wall Street' (2013) Leonardo DiCaprio stars as New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort who relentlessly pursues wealth by manipulating stock prices for his own financial gain. Heading a committed team at his Stratton Oakmont brokerage house in Long Island, it isn't long before he attracts the attention of the FBI who are suspicious of his increasingly lavish and hedonistic lifestyle. 'The Theory of Everything' (2014) stars Eddie Redmayne as English physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking and Felicity Jones as his first wife Jane. The film follows the relationship between Stephen and Jane as they fall in love while studying at Cambridge during the 1960s. With Jane's support, Stephen is able to deal with his diagnosis of advanced motor neurone disease and achieve great success and international acclaim in the scientific field with his theories on time and space. Finally, 'Unbroken' (2014) tells the story of former Olympic champion runner Louis Zamperini (Jack O'Connell), who, after surviving a plane crash in the Pacific, suffers terrible physical and mental abuse while being held at numerous Japanese concentration camps over the course of the Second World War.
