Downsizing DVD Review


Good Morning Lovelies,

Revealed for the first time in the UK at the London Film Festival last year, Downsizing seemed to be a film with a stroke of genius within it. And it definitely has it!

Starring Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig, as a husband and wife team, the film captures the events that happen after scientists discover how to shrink people to fix the world’s population problem. Volunteering for the project, the pair finds a new tiny life, yet it isn’t all as it may have seemed to them.

Director Alexander Payne is known for his out of this world films and this does not disappoint in getting you to think about a different place. Or should I say being a different size. He manages to make you think, feel and embrace his crazy ideas with ease, as the world comes to accept the small beings they may have to become in order to survive.

Starting the feature in a fun and witty way to introduce the idea to audiences, the film takes a darker turn about halfway through. The small world is being destroyed quickly, due to humanity, allowing the representation of what we are doing to our planet to shine through.

As for the acting, Damon and Wiig are a power team when it comes to this film. Whether it be funny moments or the more dramatic ones, the bounce off each other to present an enjoyable pair who definitely need to return to the big screen soon.

Overall Payne has created a clever and interesting film that will have you thinking about your economical footprint at every turn. No character is left behind and the world they live in is eye catching and thought provoking.

There so, I am giving it...
