Tiptoes is a 2003 drama starring Matthew McConaughey, Kate Beckinsale, and Gary Oldman in a heartfelt story about a normal-sized man from a family of dwarves who has to explain to his bride-to-be what his genetic predisposition to dwarfism means for their future. McConaughey plays Steven Bedalia, a man who had kept his family's dwarfism hidden from his beloved girlfriend, Carol (Beckinsale). When Carol gets pregnant, Steven has to tell her there's a large possibility the child will be a dwarf. Carol is shocked at the revelation, and Steven wonders if he'll be able to raise a child in a world he's already watched ridicule his brother and his parents. The pressure causes Steven and Carol to drift apart, and Carol seeks solace in the reassuring arms of Steven's dwarf brother, Rolfe (Oldman). Peter Dinklage appears as the Marxist rebel Maurice, and Patricia Arquette plays Lucy, Maurice's girlfriend. Tiptoes is a gripping examination of the relationships between normal-sized and little people, directed by Matthew Bright.moreless
