‘Risk Taker. Rule Breaker. Game Changer’ Directed by John Lee Hancock, THE FOUNDER features the true story of how Ray Kroc (played by Michael Keaton), a 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. He maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire.
