Hey there! See the Golden Globes? Who doesn’t love watching a bunch of talented folks get blotto then take the stage? (In all seriousness; if you haven’t watched this years show, at least peep Meryl Streep’s powerful acceptance speech.)
Ready for more award-worthy performances to add to your Oscar pool? Well, I’ve got passes for The Founder! Synopsis!
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.
