The Founder

Biography History Drama


Mac and Dick MacDonald revolutionised the hamburger in the 1950s but it was Ray Kroc who founded the Macdonalds Corporation.

Most of us can't remember a time before food came in paper packaging, and "The Founder" takes us back to that time. The era is charmingly recreated, and it's easy to become engrossed in this piece of modern history. The plot follows facts without super-sizing the story. No ooh-aah moments, no tense build-ups or edge of the seat scenes. What there is, is a winning story about the man behind the brand and the brothers who invented fast food. Burger Kings.
