The Founder is the true story of how Ray Kroc, played by Michael Keaton, a struggling salesman from Illinois, met Mac (John Carroll Lynch) and Dick McDonald (Nick Offerman), who were running a burger operation in 1950s Southern California. With his past being full of odd end jobs that were nothing less than lackluster. Luck turned around the second Kroc met the two brothers' behind McDonald's. Immediately impressed by their speedy system of making food the idea to franchise came natural. The film follows the story to how McDonald's quickly became a worldwide sensation.
"The film is quintessential in a lot of ways," explains Keaton. "It's the American story, its less about Kroc and about who we are as a people and what capitalism means - the good and the bad."
Following the film guests relocated to the Hollywood hospot, Delilah. Guests enjoyed reflecting over the film while enjoying cocktails provided by Deleon Tequila. Sourced from the Los Altos region of Jalisco, Deleon delivers a high quality, smooth, distinctive, finish that is far from 'traditional.'
Per usual, Micheal Keaton wow'd the crowd with his performance in The Founder.
