Split – As three teenage girls wait in a car to be driven home the morning after a sleepover party, a strange man gets into the driver’s seat. His name is Kevin (James McAvoy) — a seriously mentally ill man with 23 personalities. He kidnaps the girls and shuts them away in a locked bunker. They quickly learn he has more than one identity when he shows up dressed as a woman, telling them, “Don’t worry. He knows what you’re here for. He knows he’s not allowed to touch you.”
The Founder – The true story of how small-time salesman Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton) met brothers Dick McDonald (Nick Offerman) and Mac McDonald (John Carroll Lynch) when he was selling them a large order of mixers for the small restaurant chain that they’d started on their own. He manages to talk the brothers into letting him get involved, but the three soon have disagreements. When they don’t approve of his ideas, he gets frustrated and eventually manages to pull the company out from under them, despite opposition from all sides, including his wife Ethel (Laura Dern). However, he goes on to eventually create the billion-dollar McDonald’s empire.
