About this movie

The Founder is a drama that tells the true story of how Ray Kroc (Keaton), 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 maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire. © 2016 Speedee Distribution, LLC. All Rights Reserved

A horrible person but written and filmed in a way that it’s very interesting to watch, difficult to do. A great film, worth watching.

Loved this movie. Gives a great insight into how McDonald's became a huge corporation. And how nice people in business don't succeed.

Don't be put off by the silly two star review. This is an interesting story about a prick of a person with no moral compass. A man who became a huge success.
