Directed by John Lee Hancock (SAVING MR. BANKS), THE FOUNDER features the true story of how Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton), a struggling salesman from Illinois, met Mac and Dick McDonald, who were running a burger operation in 1950s Southern California. Kroc was impressed by the brothers’ speedy system of making the food and saw franchise potential. Writer Robert Siegel (THE WRESTLER) details how Kroc maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire. The film also stars Laura Dern as Ray Kroc’s first wife Ethel; John Carroll Lynch as Mac McDonald and Nick Offerman as Dick McDonald.thefounder1

"How is Michael Keaton's performance as McDonald's self-proclaimed founder Ray Kroc? I gotta say, I'm lovin' it. Keaton makes this electrifying take on the godfather of fast-food resonate for the scary here and now." -Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"It's the dash of pickle in Robert Siegel's script - a streak of sour, cheek-puckering cynicism amid its warmer, blander conventions - that gives "The Founder" its mojo." -Guy Lodge, Varietythefounder2
