Everything You Need To Know About Downsizing

Sci-fi, comedy, drama – Downsizing has it all!

Director: Alexander Payne

Writers: Alexander Payne, Jim Taylor

Cast: Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig, Hong Chau

Release Date: January 12, 2018

One of Hollywood’s latest releases for the week is a fun movie with lots of familiar faces. Matt Damon, who needs no introduction, pairs up with Kristen Wiig (one of the badasses from Ghostbusters) with a colorful mix of supporting actors like Jason SudeikisChristoph Waltz, and Hong Chau in the sci-fi comedy drama titled Downsizing. The movie has been co-written and directed by Alexander Payne – the same guy who wrote and directed The Descendants in 2011. Downsizing has been making a buzz because of its supporting actress Chau, who has received several nominations for her role. There’s a lot more to this film and its trailer is one of the reasons we want to watch it in theatres this weekend.

As we can see, Downsizing has an interesting plot. It reminds us of the sci-fi comedy of our childhood, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, where similarly, regular-sized humans were shrunk to miniature versions of themselves. Payne’s movie uses this concept to tackle the problem of over-population. If humans were “downsized” to 0.364% of our normal size, there would be a lot more resources for us to share. In the trailer, we see that a community has been built for people who wish to undergo the procedure. Their refined lives are more comfortable, lavish and overall, improved. The trailer does not show the downside of the same, but we guess that’s why we need to watch the full movie to know.
