The Founder (12A)
USA/2017/115mins/12A. Dir: John Lee Hancock With: Michael Keaton, Nick Offerman, Laura Dern, B.J. Novak
In 1950s America, struggling travelling salesman Ray Kroc meets California burger restaurant owners Mac and Dick McDonald. Impressed by the brothers’ speedy system of making the food he sees the business potential and grows the name into something astonishing. A study of amoral ambition and corporate cruelty, this is a timely and smart look at American exceptionalism.
