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.
