Whilst It may not have featured in the Academy Awards nominees, it certainly deserved an accolade for this film, The Founder. The film stars Michael Keaton who plays Ray Kroc, a salesman from Illinois, met Mac and Dick McDonald, who were running a burger operation in 1950s Southern California. Kroc was impressed by the brothers’ speedy system of making the food and saw franchise potential. He manoeuvred himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire.
This is an original film with a small budget but can make a big impact in the world of the film industry. This is the sort of film I love! A tale of an American Classic, who McDonald’s grew into a multi-billion dollar empire. Michael Keaton is absolutely brilliant playing Ray Kroc, and we must not forget Nick Offerman and John Carroll Lynch’s superb performances as the McDonald brothers. You can see why this film was back by Jeremy Renner, one of the producers of the film. The founder is Tense, entertaining, and nostalgic yet decidedly modern, this drama is a feast of filmmaking. It is Fascinating, subtle film on the machinations of Ray Kroc, the man who made a burger stop an empire, sold out its originators and birthed Trump America.
