A new world of possibilities awaits, thanks to a revolutionary medical procedure known as Downsizing. Billed as environmentally-friendly, many people choose to downsize for economic benefits. When the kindly occupational therapist, Paul, undergoes the new procedure, finding himself in this brand-new existence, he must choose between a sheltered life or making an impact in his own small way. Can he help save the planet and afford a nice lifestyle at the same time?
The movie goes into great lengths to show the audience that everyone gets completely shaved head to toe. During the shot that shows the Leisureland employees removing the sheets over the men, one of the men still has visible pubic hair See more »
A person 5 inches tall would have a very high and squeaky voice - so high, in fact, that it would be on a different wavelength altogether and inaudible to the ears of a full-sized person, like an ultra-sonic dog whistle. (A dog might be able to hear them, but that's about all.) At the other end of the scale, a downsized person would hear a full-sized person's voice as a low growl, like a vinyl record played too slow. The downsized people all had "normal" voices - even in scenes showing them conversing with full-sized people. See more »
This movie was so disappointing....in so many ways. With so many strong, media-hyped and highly anticipated films coming out in the 2017 holiday/end-of-the-year season I feel cheated that I chose to see Downsizing over other contenders. I thought the premise was fresh and imaginative but then, less than half-way through the movie, the whole story line took took a sharp turn. The 'charm' disappeared and the characters, along with the plot, seemed to sail off in an uncharted direction. (Before the movie ended I was already thinking of the recent 'disastrous' fate of the film MOTHER!) The whole literal downsizing idea had so much more potential than to be turned into another Hollywood message film to the audience.
