In this sci-fi satire, scientists discover a way to shrink people down to about six inches tall, and hope to use the technique to build micro communities that will reduce humanity's impact on the environment. A frustrated Omaha resident (Matt Damon) agrees to the procedure after learning that he'll be able to afford a much more opulent lifestyle in his new micro village, but he soon discovers that his new home isn't all it's cracked up to be. Christoph Waltz, Kristen Wiig, Hong Chau, Jason Sudeikis, Udo Kier, Neil Patrick Harris, and Laura Dern co-star. Directed by Alexander Payne (Election, Sideways, Nebraska).
