You might remember that last year I introduced you to a little indie movie called Tiptoes, a film that followed Matthew McConaughey as the lone regular-sized person in a family of little people, and how he must introduce his love (played by Kate Beckinsale) to his secret family. It's a strange, mostly ignored film, one that would probably be completely ignored if not for one specific ingredient in the mix -- Gary Oldman playing his twin brother Rolfe, a dwarf. Yes, Oldman actually walked around on his knees for an indie film. (Something that doesn't play as well as Lon Chaney's Penalty.)
As the story goes, Steve's (McConaughey) girlfriend (Beckinsale) gets pregnant, and a day later, she learns that her beloved comes from a family of little people she's never met. Of course, there are fears about what will happen to the baby, the potential health problems of little people, and a growing divide between the man who feels ashamed of his family and the girlfriend he thinks is romanticizing the whole scenario.
And this all leads to this bit of news: The film has been added to SlashControl, which means you can now watch it for free. Finally, you don't have to figure out which reigns supreme -- curiosity over seeing Oldman as a dwarf, or paying to see a medicore-at-best movie.
Settle in and head over to SlashControl to watch Tiptoes!
