Trailer: ‘Downsizing’ - Dec 22

Directed by Alexander Payne, written by Payne and Jim Taylor, starring Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig, Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau, Jason Sudeikis and Neil Patrick Harris.

I love high-concept, science fiction dramedy, so I’m all in on this. It reminds of ‘Truman Show’ and ‘Black Mirror’ in the best ways. The movie has already screened at TIFF and received preliminary mixed reviews, which is disheartening. But I’m going to stay open minded and optimistic for now.
