Overpopulation is a huge problem that scientists are working on fixing every day.
‘Downsizing’ has a solution.
In the film, it is possible to shrink yourself down to the size of 5 inches. While being smaller your one dollar translates to a thousand, you consume less and have a much smaller impact on the Earth. The Johnsons (Sudeikis) has already done it and with the bills adding up, Audrey (Wiig) and Paul (Damon) Safranek have decided to go ahead and do the procedure.
Director Alexander Payne loves satire and ‘Downsizing’ is no exception to the rule. In the above interview, Payne talks more about the story and Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudeikis, Hong Chau discusses his films and how the film mixes its important message with comedy and how that helps, as well as why it’s important that this film comes out now.
‘Downsizing’ releases December 22, 2017.
