As the world’s resources become ever more stretched, Norwegian scientists pioneer a technique of cellular miniaturisation which gives humans the option of shrinking to mere inches high. The benefits are great. The small consume so much less and are worth so much more, after all. Overstretched Paul Safranek (Matt Damon), encouraged by his wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig), gradually buys into the idea, though once tiny, nothing much works out for him. A supremely kooky sci-fi road movie, Alexander Payne’s Downsizing is a work of dazzling wit and intelligence. Damon delivers one of his best performances, and are great supporting roles for Christoph Waltz and Hong Chau.
