Based on a true story from the 1970s, and starring Alan Cumming in a tour-de-force performance, Any Day Now is a powerful tale of love, acceptance and family. When a teenager with Down syndrome is abandoned by his mother, a gay couple, Rudy (Alan Cumming) and Paul (Garret Dillahunt), take him in and become the loving family he's never had. But when their living arrangement is discovered, the men are forced to fight a biased legal system to save the life of the child they have come to love as their own.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: An outraged, unblinking depiction of institutionalized homophobia three decades ago, when the prevailing court opinion in adoption cases was that exposing a child to a homosexual environment was harmful.
Fresh: Cumming is the linchpin, and the actor does an exceptional job of moving across the vast galaxy of universal emotions about partners and parenthood. He takes us to the heart of the matter in ways that matter most.
Fresh: It would take a heart of stone - or zero tolerance for soap - to resist Any Day Now, a full-throttle weepie about a West Hollywood gay couple trying to adopt a neglected boy with Down syndrome.
Rotten: Too much of "Any Day Now" founders in cliche and predictable table-turning and point-scoring instead of building a set of complicated characters at odds with a biased system.
Any Day Now
I had the priviledge of seeing this film at the Hamptons Film Festival. It was very moving and raw. The actors were very sincere and let us know, that this was based on a true story. I highly recommend this film !

This is a must-see film. It was amazing. Alan Cuming was great! A sad but honest film that everyone should see. It will open you mind and your heart!
I loved this movie! It was so well acted and presented. There's so much I want to say, but I don't want to give anything away. I too highly recommend it. It's very moving and very important to know. It's worth the rental.
