What are you doing this weekend? Here's a chance to escape into the inspiring and fascinating story of one of our country's most successful entrepreneurs, Ray Kroc. “The Founder” is the true story of how struggling salesman Kroc, played by Michael Keaton, 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.

Writer Robert Siegel (“The Wrestler”) details how Kroc maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire. The film also stars Laura Dern as Kroc's first wife, Ethel; John Carroll Lynch as Mac McDonald and Nick Offerman as Dick McDonald. Whether you're a McDonald's fan or not, the movie is entertaining (Keaton never disappoints) and just may give you that entrepreneurial nudge you may be looking for!

This video is more than 30 seconds long, but we knew you’d want to take a peek at this amazing film, courtesy of The Weinstein Company!
