What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Founder tells the fascinating history of how fast-food chain McDonald's began -- and became a global brand. Expect many intense conversations/confrontations among stakeholders; some of them end up in loud, menacing arguments. There's some swearing (including a use of "f--k," plus "s--t," "hell," and more) and social drinking by adults. A man and woman who are each married to others flirt with each other, and he eventually seduces her off screen. While main character Ray Krock (Michael Keaton) certainly isn't warm and fuzzy, he does show that determination, perseverance, and hard work can pay off.
