In the near future, scientists find a way to shrink people down to five inches; this ā€downsizingā€ becomes an environmentally friendly, even luxurious, option for a married couple in Omaha (Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig). Alexander Payne worked on this idea for many years before it finally became a movie, but the results are a bit of a letdown. Ambitious, with plenty of food for thought regarding the nature of activism, but not quite as funny, charming or touching as intended. Still, a strong performance by Damon who goes through quite a journey, Christoph Waltz as his hard-partying neighbor, and Hong Chau as a woman who was downsized against her will.
