Michael Keaton is back with yet another mind blowing performance, as he plays the maverick American entrepreneur Ray Kroc- ‘The Founder’ of McDonald’s.
Known for his outstanding performances in Academy Award winning films like ‘Birdman’ and ‘Spotlight’, Keaton is back with yet another masterpiece, ‘The Founder’. He plays the role of Ray Kroc, who was responsible for making the world’s favorite fast food joint McDonald’s a success that it is today.
‘The Founder’ throws light on the real life story of Ray Kroc, who transformed McDonald’s from a San Bernardino hamburger stand into a global empire now with over 35,000 locations around the world.
Talking about the film, Keaton says,”Before this, I knew there was a Ray Kroc but if someone asked, I’d probably have offered the generic response that he started McDonald’s. I didn’t know there were McDonald’s brothers and 90% of the population doesn’t know that. I have tried to put this as succinctly as I could.”
The film also stars two-time Academy Award nominee Laura Dern as Ethel Kroc, Ray’s longtime wife of 39 years and is directed by John Lee Hancock of ‘Saving Mr. Banks’, ‘Snow White’ and ‘The Huntsman’ and ‘The Blindside’ fame.
