Editorial Reviews

Any Day Now is a powerful tale of love, acceptance and family. When a teenager with Down Syndrome (Isaac Leyva) is abandoned by his mother, a gay couple (Alan Cumming and Garret Dillahunt) takes him in and becomes the loving family he's never had. But when their unconventional living arrangement is disconcerted by authorities, 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. Inspired by a true story from the late 1970s, Any Day Now touches on legal and social issues that are as relevant today as they were 35 years ago.

4.0 out of 5 stars Touching family drama January 12, 2013
Format:DVD
I saw this movie about a month ago at the Landmark E Street Cinema in Washington, DC. Glad to see this now finally has a DVD release date.

"Any Day Now" (2012 release; 94 min.) brings the story of Rudy (played by Alan Cumming) and Paul (played by Garret Dillahunt), how they meet in California in 1979, and fall in love. Rudy comes to care for his neighbor's teengage boy with Down syndrome (Marco, played by Isaac Leyva), as Marco's mom is a drug addict and in any event doesn't care for Marco one bit. Eventually Rudy wants to adopt Marco and Paul (an attorney) tries to build a legal case for it. This of course creates all kinds of problems, as the justice system is not designed/prepared for a gay couple to adopt. To give away more of the plot would ruin your viewing experience so you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out, although I will just say that I did not see the end coming AT ALL.

Several comments: first, while this movie is about a gay couple, please don't call it 'a movie about gays', as "Any Day Now" simply uses these circumstances to showcase the absurdities and shortcomings in the California legal system of 30 years ago. Second, Alan Cumming gives a brilliant performance as Rudy, and confirms yet again what an enormous talent he is (watch him sing "I Shall Be Released"!). Third, the movie is a great time capsule of the late 70s/early 80s, with remarkable attention to the visual details of those times.

4.0 out of 5 stars DONUTS ARE POISON April 15, 2013
Format:DVD
The film takes place in West Los Angels 1979, but clearly it is about legal cases currently in the system.

Rudy (Alan Cumming) is an out of the closet female impersonator,and not a very good one. While on the job at Fabio's he meets Paul (Garret Dillahunt) a man who looks like Jon Voight out of "Midnight Cowboy." They become an item. Rudy lives in a run down apartment next to a coke-prostitute named Marianna (Jamie Anne Allman). She has a son, Marco (Isaac Leyva). Marco has Down Syndrome and Marianna is a terrible mother.

When Marianna gets busted for prostitution and drugs, Rudy cares for the child in order to keep him out of a foster home. Paul joins the family as they become the emergency legal guardians of Marco. When Paul's lifestyle becomes exposed, prejudices abound and lives change dramatically.

The film is well acted. The action moves slow, but steady. The film contrasts the gay care free disco music of the era to the angst of our gay couple. Make no mistake about it, this is a pro gay adoption movie. I am sure this film will convince anyone that we need to allow gay couples to adopt kids with Down Syndrome nobody else wants...and as the title suggests, 14th amendment equality will come any day now.

Parental Guidance: F-bomb. no nudity. M/M implied oral car scene, 2 men in bed hugging/kissing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Profoundly Sad, Brilliant Acting August 7, 2013
Format:DVD
First I have to say that I watched this movie TWICE, the second time hoping that the ending would be different- that the courts would realize they made a huge mistake, put Marco back into the safe and loving home of the couple who loved and wanted him, and of course, that he would live happily ever after. One effect this movie had on me was that it was so sad it hurt.

On the other hand, the cast was impressive. Alan Cumming's portrayal of Rudy was brilliant. And I was impressed with Isaac's acting skills. During the scene where he went to bed crying when Rudy and Paul didn't come for him, I was sobbing out loud! This scene illicited such strong maternal instincts that it almost had me crashing through my TV screen to comfort him! Isaac could win an award just for his smile and anyone who sees this movie will fall in love with him.

The scenes in the beginning(and also later on)where Isaac was walking alone at night effectively(and emotionally)drew me right into the story. That was a genius move by the Director. The Costuming department.....not so much. Really? They couldn't find better wigs? The wigs gave a bizarre slap stick effect to this very serious movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent March 19, 2013
By Kristen
Format:Blu-ray
Saw this movie with my boyfriend in the theater, it was a change of pace from mainstream Hollywood. It touched on a topic that is usually left alone. It was a risk that the directors and writers took but a rewarding one. I was impressed and recommend it :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Powerful story June 30, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
So sad how we treat children based on certain adult lifestyle we don't like. All this child needed was love and guidance which these 2 men would have gladly given. Mother was just white junkie trash.

his is one of the best films I have seen in a long time. This is a heart warming, honest, loving story showing that a family should be about more than blood. Truly a remarkable performance by all, but Alan Cumming should be awarded for this role. Overall, according to Wikipedia this film has received 9 awards including Best Film. Don't laugh but I have comes to like him in The Good Wife as Mr. Elie Gold, but after this role its moved from like to love. I will be telling everyone about this movie. Please give it a try.
