The Founder

Awesome film about Ray Kroc, and the founding of McDonald's.  I knew enough about this to recognize many parts of this as accurate. Kroc was a pretty bad guy in how he treated the McDonald brothers but he did do some pretty amazing things in organizing and creating the McDonald's franchise, and identifying the right people to hire and franchise. The McDonald brothers come across as geniuses: the Henry Ford or Samuel Colt of burgers.

Interesting closing text: McDonald's feeds 1% of the world's population daily.

My nephew has a bit part in that movie as an employee taking orders.
