The Founder

Na een beslissende ontmoeting met de gebroeders McDonald wil de berooide verkoper Ray Kroc hamburgers op een andere manier gaan maken en aan de man brengen

Onze opinie:
Geen actie te vinden in deze film, maar het verhaal over hoe McDonald’s uitgroeide van een simpel (maar ingenieus) hamburgerrestaurant tot een wereldketen die ongeveer 1% van de wereldbevolking voedt is wel zeker de moeite om te volgen. Goed acteerwerk van de cast, en een intrigerend in beeld gebracht verhaal dat gebaseerd is op waargebeurde feiten. Als je eens wat anders wil dan bloedvergieten, superhelden of een whodunnit dan is deze zeker niet te versmaden.
