Tiptoes (2003)

Steven trains firefighters, his girlfriend Carol is a painter. They’ve been living together for months and plan to get married soon. When Carol finds out that she’s pregnant, Steven is hesitant because he thinks that they rushed into it too fast. Matters are complicated even more so when the same day, Steven’s brother Rolfe stops by and Carol discovers that he is a dwarf, as is Steven’s entire family. This surprises and concerns her because she is afraid her baby will be born a dwarf. So Rolfe brings her to meet Steven’s family so she can get some helpful information about the challenges of raising a dwarf. Steven is confused and frustrated by the whole thing and that makes his relationship with Carol both distant and awkward. Interesting story with good performances by Beckinsale and Oldman. Starring Gary Oldman, Peter Dinklage, Kate Beckinsale, Matthew McConaughey, Patricia Arquette, Debbie Lee Carrington, Ed Gale, David Alan Grier 6/10
