Editorial Reviews

Inspired by a true story, ANY DAY NOW tells of a gay couple in the 1970s that takes in an abandoned mentally handicapped teenager and becomes the family he's never had. When their unconventional living arrangement is discovered by the authorities, Rudy (Alan Cumming) and Paul (Garret Dillahunt) must fight a biased legal system to adopt the child they have come to love as their own. While touching on legal and social issues that are more relevant now than ever, ANY DAY NOW also addresses universal themes of love and acceptance.

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.

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.

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.

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 :)

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.

Both Actors whom stared in this love did a compelling job! This movie was about how 2 gay men adopted a mentally handicapped child.. that was taken away for the mer fact of them being GAY parents...

I am writing this review after reading a bunch of other reviews which may have been written for some other film that those reviewers have in their head, but not this one. In "Any Day Now", Alan Cumming plays Rudy, an over-the-top character, a drag performer at a gay bar in 1979 Los Angeles. In true "we-only-have-90-minutes-to-tell-this-story" fashion, things happen a little too quickly as Rudy meets a just-peeking-out-of-the-closet lawyer; then takes in a boy from next door who has Downs Syndrome and whose addict/prostitute mother has just been put in jail; and then moves in with the lawyer so that they can apply for legal custody of the boy. The remainder of the movie is an indictment of the injustice of the legal system in dealing with caregivers who happen to be gay, putting personal prejudices ahead of the needs of the child. The entire cast is noteworthy. Sure, it would have been better if there had been a bit more time for plot development before diving head first into this personal crisis, straining credibility a bit. Yet the film barrels forward with its story and its cause, both of which it effectively delivers.
