The Founder hits theaters nationwide this Friday. Based on a true story, the movie stars Michael Keaton as Ray Kroc, a fifty-something Chicago salesman who went from hawking milkshake machines out of his trunk to building the most successful restaurant franchise in the history of the world. (Something called McDonald’s.)
