Dir. Alexander Payne, USA/Norway, 135 mins, 2017

It’s the only rational solution. With human consumption rapidly exhausting Earth’s resources and nowhere else to go, Norwegian scientists perfect a radical process: miniaturisation. Paul and his wife Audrey decide to abandon their stressful lives in order to get small and move to a new downsized community – a choice that triggers life changing adventures.
Downsizing is a visually dazzling and insightful work of speculative fiction, cleverly exploring the impact of our actions on the planet.

***** ‘A winningly inventive tale of masculinity in crisis’

**** ‘Matt Damon’s shrinking comedy is big on ideas’
