Paul and Audrey Safranek are a happily married couple in Omaha, Nebraska who are experiencing financial issues. At a high-school reunion, they encounter their former friends Dave and Carol Johnson who have undergone a newly-invented process known as “downsizing” in which the recipient is shrunk to a size of five inches. After discussing the many perceived benefits – from its eco-friendliness to the economic advantages – Paul and Audrey are convinced to go ahead with the procedure and join a community set up for downsized people known as Leisureland. However, the process proves more complicated than anticipated. From acclaimed indie director Alexander Payne, this is a quirky, darkly comic satire which explores issues around immigration, prejudice and the environment.
A beautiful-looking, thoughtful comedy which stars Tobey Maguire and Reese Witherspoon as siblings who are transported into a 1950s sitcom.
