Downsizing is an absurd idea. That’s not to say it won’t be amazing, merely that the entire premise is borderline insane.
The film is what appears to be a sci-fi comedy with more emphasis on the former than the latter. Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig play a happily married couple who are offered the chance, along with everyone else in the world to be shrunk down to a minuscule size in order to help prevent overpopulation.
The way the smaller world is presented, it looks to be a near utopic paradise. But it seems to be missing something. I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop and for a more sinister twist to happen before the film’s finale…
Downsizing is coming to cinemas soon!
