The Founder — November 2017



For the month of November, Luke, Tito and Will talk about “The Founder,” which is on Netflix. It’s a 2016 biopic directed by John Lee Hancock and starring Michael Keaton as Ray Kroc, the businessman behind the expansion of McDonald’s into what we know of it today. Will points out that there is very little character development in Kroc — if any at all. What kind of takeaway does this leave the audience, who grows from watching the film more so than the characters do?

Coming up in December is Luke’s recommendation, “A Muppet Christmas Carol,” which you can find on HBO.
