Alexander Payne, of Sideways, directed and co-wrote Downsizing with Jim Taylor. This movie is topical, important and entertaining!
I really appreciated the themes in this movie; human devolution/evolution, environmentalism and most importantly compassion.
Matt Damon was really good in this and Hong Chau, of Treme, stole this movie! She was so good! She was funny, moving and brought this movie to life. Her performance elevated it from a great concept about scientific experimentation to what is best about humanity.
