The Founder (12A)

The Founder
A definite Oscar contender, this fascinating film digs into the beginnings of one of the largest companies in the world today.

The McDonald brothers, Dick (Nick Offerman) and Maurice, aka Mac (John Carroll Lynch), have established a hugely popular hamburger restaurant in 1950s southern California based on the principle of speed and quality. Their streamlined production of burgers and fries means that no customer has to wait for their food, and they show milkshake machine salesman Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton) around their kitchens with pride. Kroc was impressed by the brothers' system and maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire. Keaton is superb in this role, convincingly repulsive as the conscience-free go-getter who thinks nothing of betraying his professional and personal relationships to get to the top. The film's title is ironic; Kroc later claimed to be the founder of the company that today still bears the names of its real founders.
