The Founder (2016)

8/10
The Founder gave the world a look behind the curtain at how McDonald’s became what it is today. Michael Keaton gives another award-winning performance as Ray Kroc, probably one of the dirtiest businessman to ever live. Ana hated him, disliked all the backstabbing, and may boycott McDonald’s from now on. I really loved this story and got more and more intrigued about the fall out of an iconic partnership and how he orchestrated mass expansion. I’m happy Ray got whatever he wanted in life, but it is sad that it came at the expense of the McDonald brothers.

  1. Just saw this movie yesterday. I liked it. Its kinds of like Social Network. The it shows one person might do to succeed (which Ray did and made McDonalds as household name across the globe), yet at the cost of being ethical deceitful.

    • You bring up a great point! Ana hated The Founder and I’ve tried to convince her that it was a great movie. I can now bring up The Social Network as a comparsion story!!
