Movie Info & Cast

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

good idea, worst implementation. Nothing happens in the fipm, except a couple of jokes. Story is boring as hell.

the movie started out slow, in the middle of the movie it was slow, and the end of the movie was even slower.

Downsizing is all half-empty, big ideas that accomplish very little.

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.

There’s something for everyone in Downsizing - just not a full meal.
