Wondered how McDonalds was founded and conquered the world as the most visited restaurant which feeds 68 million people every single day? Michael Keaton plays Ray Kroc in The Founder, a business film based on the true story of how a milkshake salesman turned a small chain of burger restaurants into a fast-food empire. Although with some negative movie reviews, probably because the ending is too predictable (I mean, just look outside… it’s not hard to guess), this is still a film worth watching.
2. Molly’s Game
The greatly anticipated film, released late 2017, is another true story based on the memoir of protagonist Molly Bloom, played in the film by Jessica Chastain. If you haven’t read the book, Molly is a smart girl who uses her looks to infiltrate people and opportunities, but it’s her intelligence and wit which allows her to build a poker empire for some of the world’s richest people, including hollywood elite and even Russian mafia (which is what gets her in trouble with the FBI and everything crumbles down around her). With Aaron Sorkin making his directorial debut (though won an Oscar for writing The Social Network), the movie has a fantastic A-list acting cast with the likes of Kevin Costner, Michael Cera, Idris Elba and Chris O’Dowd.
3. The Greatest Showman
The famous world-renowned musical now has a film… Barnum (played by Hugh Jackman) is the all-round showman who founded the Barnum & Bailey Circus. The true story set in the 19th century, this musical biopic complete with singing, dancing and of course elephants… this is a feel-good film like no other and well worth a watch. Other notable actors include Zac Efron.
