What if the solution to all of Earths (and YOUR) problems was to get small? Then DOWNSIZING is literally what you need.
Once in a lifetime an idea so absurd and ridiculous comes along that you just have to make it into a movie.
Here is the premise:
Downsizing imagines what might happen if, as a solution to over-population, Norwegian scientists discover how to shrink humans to 5 inches (13 cm) tall and propose a 200-year global transition from big to small. People soon realize how much further money goes in a miniaturized world, and with the promise of a better life, everyman Paul Safranek (Matt Damon) and wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to abandon their stressed lives in Omaha in order to become small and move to a new downsized community — a choice that triggers life-changing adventures.
We are loving it!
DOWNSIZING is directed by Alexander Payne and written by Payne and Jim Taylor. Apart from Matt Damon, it stars Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau, Jason Sudeikis, and Kristen Wiig.
The film premiere was at the 74th Venice Film Festival on August 30, 2017.
It’s set to be released by Paramount Pictures in the United States on December 22, 2017.
