If you could irreversibly shrink yourself down to the size of a coffee pot in search of a life-changing fresh start, would you? Our world is crowded, and resources are overstretched. In a not far off  future, America is beginning again in miniature in the search for a smaller sized carbon footprint – a microcosm of society built in tiny well-meaning proportions. Little people cost and consume much less than their full-sized counterparts but are they really less prone to greed and corruption? Downsizing is a star-studded and hilarious sci-fi fable with some very big ideas – it’s a small world after all.

‘A gorgeous, giddy parable of a modern-day Lilliput.’ – The Guardian.
