Meeting old friends who have made the jump to downsize to a smaller, more prosperous life, the couple agree to make the irreversible transition – but things don’t go completely Paul’s way when he’s 4 inches tall!

Some long-hidden secrets and smoking guns, perhaps? Playing out in real time, director Potter delivers an observant, droll, just-absurd-enough farce, with Scott Thomas holding the film together as our dubious heroine. “A short, sharp, funny shock of a movie” (The Guardian).

Plus a BRIT School Showcase film, screened in partnership with the School’s Film & Media Production department.
For this film we are showing Storybook Ending (3.35 mins), directed by Harry Holland. A little girl must find all her childhood friends before bedtime.
