About this Film

The Founder

ODEON says...
Ray Kroc was a 52-year-old milkshake machine salesman, down on his luck and struggling financially. He became ‘The Founder’ of the biggest fast food company in the world – McDonald’s.

When the McDonald brothers placed an order with him, he decided to check out their restaurant, where food was served in 30 seconds, not 30 minutes. It was revolutionary, and Ray wanted in. Muscling his way in, he turned this small family business into the biggest, most successful fast food company in the world.

Michael Keaton stars as ‘The Founder’ of McDonald’s, a ruthless entrepreneur who built an empire out of a simple burger restaurant.

Great Film

Reviewer: izlingtonDate: 2017-02-20

I really enjoyed this film. The story itself made me so angry, due to the fact that it is a true story, giving a fantastic insight into the twisted beginnings of McDonalds. Definitely worth a watch.
