Downsizing

Little is the new big.

Financially strapped for cash, Paul (Matt Damon) and his wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to take part in the latest scientific breakthrough; downsizing.

The logistics of this film are somewhat tricky when big meets small, but director Alexander Payne, seems to take on the challenge as he creates a world that is befitting to the characteristics of all sizes.

Though this film has the makings of greatness, unfortunately, the plot falls short of its potential as the story escalates into a battle of confused madness, which almost seems to run away with itself, all whilst leaving the audience behind in a muddled haze.

Even the quick wit of Christoph Waltz (Dusan) isn’t enough to save this film from its epic decline, but it does at least provide some comic relief from an unrelenting plot disaster.
