A revealing look behind the scenes into the making of America's favorite fast food restaurant. If you like "Joy" or "The Social Network" you'll enjoy "The Founder".

Excellent, on how a salesman down on his luck rose to the top of the heap. Be sure and watch bonus features. We owe a lot to the McDonald brothers, pioneers of FAST FOOD.

Wow! Great movie! I actually lived near the McDonald's that he opened in Des Planes, IL, and even though it was billed as the "original" or the "first" McDonald's, I always knew there was more to the story. Well, now I know. I don't eat at McDonald's very often at all, but after seeing this story, I will NEVER eat there again. What a horrible, greedy man.
