THE FOUNDER (M)
STAN, FOXTEL NOW
This intriguing biopic tells the little-known story of how the McDonald’s brand became a colossus in the world of fast food. It was all the doing of a business-savvy travelling salesman named Ray Kroc (masterfully played by Michael Keaton), who stumbled upon the McDonald’s operation by chance in the mid-1950s, when it was just a single burger joint in small-town California. Hardworking brothers Dick and Mac McDonald (Nick Offerman and John Carroll Lynch) had no idea of the franchise goldmine they were sitting on. While they tinkered with experiments in swift food preparation, Kroc swooped in and literally stole the business from under their noses.
