Now playing in theaters.
Movie about the origin of McDonalds. Never mind what you may think of the chain or its food, it was interesting to look back a see how American dining was and how it changed and what it started, what the popular focus was and how marketing changed something as basic as how we eat.

I don't know how accurate it was but it did show that the original McDonald brothers were not interested in sacrificing quality for profits. (Unfortunately we know how that ended.)
