Alexander Payne – one of Hollywood’s finest contemporary directors and the man behind such modern classics as Sideways and About Schmidt – will see his latest effort Downsizing arrive on UK DVD, Blu-ray and Digital on May 28.
Hailed in Empire magazine as “an audacious, out-sized peach of a picture”, director Alexander Payne’s hilarious Downsizing arrives on DVD, Blu-ray™ and on digital to Download & Keep and Rent on May 28, 2018 from Paramount Home Media Distribution.
It’s another gem from the filmmaker behind Sideways, best film of the 2000s, and one of Jack Nicholson’s best late-career efforts, About Schmidt. He’s also made the critically acclaimed films The Descendants and Nebraska as well as cult hit Election starring a delightful Reese Witherspoon.
His latest film Downsizing stars Matt Damon as Paul Safranek alongside wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) who, after scientists find a way to shrink humans to five inches tall, decide to ditch their stressed out lives in order to get small and live large in a luxurious downsized community.
Filled with life-changing adventures and endless possibilities, Leisureland offers more than riches, as Paul discovers a whole new world and realises that we are meant for something bigger. “Brilliant and daring” (Shawn Edwards, Fox-TV) and “full of surprises” (Noah Gittell, Nerdist), Downsizing also stars Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz and Hong Chau in a breakthrough performance that earned her Golden Globe® and SAG nominations.
Downsizing is out on DVD, Blu-ray™, Download & Keep and to Rent on Digital from May 28, 2018.
