Last night saw our Unlimited advance screening of acclaimed Michael Keaton drama, The Founder. It's the story of the founding of McDonalds, so did it leave Unlimited members hungry for more? We'll start with Lee.
@cineworld Loved it, such an interesting story about something we completely take for granted. Those poor McDonald's brothers though...— Lee Boardman (@lee_boardman) February 10, 2017
Luke meanwhile praises Keaton's performance.
@cineworld Loved it! He was absolutely compelling to watch. I think I got sucked into his selling a few too many times for my own good!— Luke McCarthy-Reed (@lukehmuse) February 9, 2017
However Lyle says the tone of the performance had echoes of a certain classic Keaton character...
@cineworld Nope- liked the film, but no. Although he did keep on appearing to be just a corporate Beetlejuice,same mannerisms in both films.— Lyle D4D (@LyleD4D) February 10, 2017
Another Luke says it's a dramatic, gripping story we shouldn't take for granted.
Nevertheless it didn't work for all viewers. Andrew says he had his reservations.
@cineworld Flawed film, feels like a chunk was cut from the script, but John Carroll Lynch is as great as ever.— Andrew Jones B.S. (@EthanRunt) February 9, 2017
And Ben says although the film was enjoyable, it's not likely to stick with him.
@cineworld Wouldn't go that far. Decent performance but hardly a multi-layered character. A traditional American tale of greed.— Ben Warburton (@breadben) February 9, 2017
