From the Director who brought you Sideways, Nebraska and Election comes Downsizing. Starring Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau, Jason Sudeikis and Kristen Wiig.
Downsizing imagines what might happen if – as a solution to over-population – Norwegian scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall and propose a 200-year global transition from big to small.
People soon realise how much further money goes in a miniaturized world, and with the promise of a better life, everyman Paul Safranek (Damon) and wife Audrey (Wiig) decide to abandon their stressed lives in Omaha in order to get small and move to a new downsized community.
You never quite know where "Downsizing" is going, and that is by design: Payne is unafraid to cultivate destabilization in his audience that some members will find off-putting, others liberating.
The perfect life is just one small step away.
