This movie should have been done years ago. The story of McDonald’s and Ray Kroc is finally told in The Founder. Michael Keaton excels playing the slick, charming and sneaky Kroc. It’s a fascinating story of the humble beginnings and meteoric rise of the biggest fast food chain in the world. It has a personal connection to me since I still live in the same town that the first McDonald’s “store” opened up (it’s still there today). I feel the movie does a good job of being fair and sharing the McDonald’s brothers side of the story, it doesn’t just focus on Kroc perspective. If you’re skeptical about this film and not compelled to see it due to it being a movie about a fast food restaurant then I can assure you that it is plenty interesting and entertaining. The Founder is a fantastic movie option for you to see and come away surprised and informed about the huge pop culture entity that all of us had visited and eaten at at some point.
The Founder is available now on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, Digital HD and On Demand
