The Founder

Based on the true story of McDonalds, Michael Keaton plays Ray Kroc, a struggling salesman of slight inventions who meets the two brothers who founded the original McDonalds in San Bernardino, CA. Kroc immediately sees the potential in franchising the enterprise. The movie is story of how Kroc maneuvers his way into ownership of what would become the multibillion dollar enterprise. Michael Keaton gives an excellent, over-the-top performance as a guy that you probably either hate or love, depending on whether you view the story as one of the epitome of the American dream or an example of the worst of it. I know I left the movie glad that I made the decision decades ago of never eating at McDonalds. Thumbs up from me for a film of which I am not entirely sure of the accuracy but is definitely worth seeing for Keaton’s performance.
