DIRECTOR Alexander Payne
CAST Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig, Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau
Matt Damon stars in Alexander Payne’s whip-smart sci-fi social satire about a man who chooses to shrink himself (literally) to simplify his life.
Who can fault the logic? With consumption out of control and exhausting Earth’s resources, scientists come up with a radical, and rational, solution: miniaturization. Matt Damon leads a strong cast in this smart sci-fi social satire about a man literally downsizing and simplifying his life. Whimsical, witty and spry, Alexander Payne’s film offers gentle romance and human drama alongside moments of pure comedy.
(2017 USA 135 mins)
Weird and wonderful, zigging where it should zag and zagging where it should zig, this wildly imaginative flight of fancy strikes an admirably poised balance between whimsy, screwball comedy, social satire and generous meditation on the foibles and highest aspirations of human nature … 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. Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
