I’m thrilled to be giving away 2 passes to the advance screening for The Founder (January 18) to one lucky winner!
The Founder tells the true story about the founder of McDonald’s – Ray Croc, and how McDonald’s became a multi-million-dollar franchise. This film is especially great for all food lovers and entrepreneurs looking to get some inspiration from this intriguing story!
Cast Starring: Michael Keaton, Nick Offerman, Laura Dern, and John Carroll Lynch
Director: John Lee Hancock
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.
