Solid biographical drama with good performances, especially by Keaton. I never knew this backstory of McDonald's and based on Wikipedia, it seemed to be pretty accurate. The actual founders were shown quite positively. Ray Croc appeared ruthless and unscrupulous but very driven.

I agree with the above.

I saw a documentary on McD's a few years ago and the movie tracked what I'd know pretty closely.
And Keaton did a very good job.

I grew up eating Sunday Lunches at one of the very first stores he opened north of Chicago. I remember sitting on those white tile benches on the sides of the building, looking in through the huge glass windows, as they assembly-lined the burgers. And had a chance to go to the Burger University that's nearby, the large campus used to train management.
All that from two or three core ideas. Wow
