Richard Linklater (Dazed And Confused, A Scanner Darkly) helms this adaptation of Eric Schlosser’s best-seller. Intriguingly, the filmmakers have taken the adventurous step of turning this non-fictional book into a fictional film. Says Linklater: "[We wanted to do] a character study of the lives behind the facts and figures of fast food".
The Big One is the latest burger from fast-food chain Michey’s (not McDonalds, yet very much McDonalds) and it’s shaping up to be their most successful product yet. However, there’s something strange in the meat. Company man Don (Greg Kinnear) is sent to investigate the meat packing plant in Cody, Colorado. The story examines fast food industry goings on via Don's visit; a group of illegal immigrants from Mexico who can only find jobs at that plant; and a group of highschool kids who work at a Mickey’s outlet.
