Synopsis

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 miniaturised 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 get small and move to a new downsized community — a choice that triggers life-changing adventures.

Awards

Golden Globe Nominee | Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture | Hong Chau

Reviews

  • "Damon stars as a man who shrinks down to the height of five inches in Payne’s sci-fi comedy, a winningly inventive tale of masculinity in crisis." ★★★★★ - Xan Brooks, THE GUARDIAN 
  • "Alexander Payne's science-fiction comedy about humans who get miniaturised to save the planet (and live like royalty) is that rare thing: a ticklish and resonant crowd-pleaser for grown-ups." - Owen Gleiberman, VARIETY
  • "Captivating, funny and possessed of a surprise-filled zig-zag structure that makes it impossible to anticipate where it's headed, this is a deeply humane film that, like the best Hollywood classics, feels both entirely of its moment and timeless." - Todd McCarthy, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
