The Founder

Score: 4/4

Ray Kroc – “Now, I know what you’re thinkin’. How the hell does a 52 year old, over-the-hill milkshake machine salesman… build a fastfood empire with 16,000 restaurants, in 50 states, in 5 foreign countries… wtih an annual revenue of in the neighborhood of $700,000,000.00… One word… PERSISTENCE. Nothing in this world can take the place of good old persistence. Talent won’t. Nothing’s more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius won’t. Unrecognized genius is practically a clich. Education won’t. Why the world is full of educated fools. Persistence and determination alone are all powerful.”

The story of Ray Kroc, a salesman who turned two brothers’ innovative fast food eatery, McDonald’s, into one of the biggest restaurant businesses in the world with a combination of ambition, persistence and ruthlessness.

      Yeah I went in not expecting much as I am not a massive fan of biographies. Came out pleasantly surprised at how great the movie was.
