Alexander Payne’s “Downsizing” takes place in a world where Norwegian scientists have solved overcrowding by being able to shrink people down to the size of action figures.

It is the ambitious story of a man and wife who decide to shrink themselves down in order to cut back on economic spending.

Unfortunately for the man, his wife backs out at the last minute.
