Bill C’s Review – 4 out of 5
Michael Keaton gives an excellent performance in this biopic about McDonald’s ‘founder’ Ray Kroc.
The film covers the period when Kroc, as a a struggling milk shake machine salesman discovers the McDonalds brothers burger stand through it’s rise as a conglomerate. The move is not only showcases the growth of the company but the birth of an industry.
The decisions that led to the success of the business and overcame early struggles are fascinating but even more interesting is how Kroc deals with people, especially the McDonald brothers. In addition to Keaton’s performance there are also fine performances by Nick Offerman, John Carroll Lynch, Laura Dern and others.
