The Founder (M) This sur­pris­ing film stars Michael Keaton as Ray Kroc, the man who claimed to be the founder of the McDonald’s ham­burger chain. The film re­veals that, back in 1954, Kroc en­coun­tered brothers Dick and Mac McDonald (Nick Of­fer­man, John Car­roll Lynch) at their restau­rant and en­cour­aged them to en­ter an agree­ment with him, a con­tract later bro­ken, to ex­pand the com­pany through na­tional and then in­ter­na­tional fran­chises. As a de­pic­tion of ram­pant cap­i­tal­ism, John Lee Han­cock’s film is force­ful and con­vinc­ing, and Keaton is ter­rific as the odi­ous Kroc. Billy Lynn’s Long Half­time Walk
