Tiptoes
2003
directed by Matthew Bright
starring Kate Beckinsale, Matthew McConaughey, Patricia Arquette, Gary Oldman

The expectations I had of this movie were mixed.
On the one hand, judging by the poster I didn't think it was going to be to good
(The fact that Matthew McConaughey was in it didn't exactly improve the situation),
but on the other hand the plot was so intriguing and weird, I simply had to watch it anyway.
And again my curiosity rewarded me with an interesting and entertaining 90 minutes.

The film is basically about Matthew McConaughey’s character being the only average sized person in a family of "little people",
including his twin brother Gary Oldman. (Yes Gary Oldman plays a little person! I had to look twice at first because he looked so different.)
The surprising thing is that the movie is strange and quirky. It has such a different approach to little people and their lives.
For once, they're not portrayed as circus people, but as normal. Even though some would not call the life of the characters in this movie very normal.
I guess that's what I liked about it!
The conclusion is, you will definitely have an enjoyable movie experience if you watch Tiptoes.
