IN their song The Fly, U2 sang ‘ambition bites the nails of success’ and this is the kind of motto which shines through in The Founder.

This fast-paced, fast food of a movie is 100 per cent Keaton silver screen magic; the man is mesmeric in what is the story of Ray Kroc.

He is the 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.

Keaton has been ‘on fire’ since his performance in Birdman and in this film he encapsulates the need for speed in the embryonic days of the fast food industry.

Kroc saw the future of the fast food and he knows if you not only get in on the ground floor but build the floor as well you will be ahead of the game and coming down the curve at 150 mph.

The Founder stars Michael Keaton, Nick Offerman, John Carroll Lynch This is your chance to watch this great film by going to the David Hall in South Petherton on Friday, August 4 at 8pm.
