honey Ted & I had a #ChristmasEveDateNight at the movies during the weekend. We showed up at Barton Creek AMC theaters and decided on ‘Downsizing’ because it was the shortest wait to see a movie. I didn’t know too much about the movie other than a brief interview I caught w/ Matt Damonearlier in the week. All I knew is folks can be shrunk to about 5 inches tall.
It has a big cast Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Kristen Wiig, Hong Chau (newcomer) … ! Downsizing is a Big Character changing movie. If you like character movies, I would think you’d like this one. Every character seems to grow & learn more about themselves. It was directed by Alexander Payne who did a lot of filming in his hometown & one I grew up in..Omaha, NE. It was cool seeing some familiar places.
The underlying story behind ‘Downsizing’..Scientists have found a way where people can be shrunk into about 5 inches tall. You take up less space, which means your waste is way smaller. The idea of ‘Downsizing’ happens because of the ever growing problem of Sustainability, or the lack of it, when it comes to most things man does with and for Mama Earth. But the movie grows way bigger than this theme into the characters you end up liking because of their reaction to the environment in which they live. If you shrink, you can be a millionaire w/ a mansion in many cases. It’s much cheaper to live ‘Downsized’ than ‘Big‘. Although not everyone is a candidate, and if they are, it doesn’t mean they will be Rich.. smaller. There is another side of this, that is hidden until Matt Damon’s character Paul discovers this after being Downsized for awhile. I suppose it’s considered a Comedy because of several Dark Comedy moments to lighten the mood at times.
It’s a movie that gets you talking to others. With the main question being… Would you Downsize if this was a thing? Click here for more!
