He is. He’s also the reason I went back to see this movie now. I had just come off of watching the new Spiderman movie, and loved Keaton so much in that, I needed more Keaton in my life, so I watched the Founder.
I also found it pretty unexpected that the movie wasn’t about the two founders of McDonalds, but were instead about Keaton’s character. He was a very sympathetic character. What was kind of mind-blowing was the part of the story where despite the huge success of all these restaurants, he wasn’t making any money. Until he finally lucked into the right strategy, and then he was making so much money that he could buy himself out of a contract he didn’t like.
