Synopsis

Inspired by a true story from the late 1970s and touching on legal & social issues that are as relevant today as they were 35 years ago, 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 takes him in and becomes the loving family he’s never had. But when their unconventional living arrangement is discovered 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.

ACCLAIM FOR ANY DAY NOW

[Alan Cumming] gives a floodlight-bright performance as a drag artist”- Ryan Gilbey, The Guardian

 “my cheeks are soaked with tears after watching the brilliant Any Day Now – absolutely stunning”-Stephen Fry

“Alan Cumming delivers his best performance to date”Variety

“Alan Cumming is effervescent, it’s the performance of his career”, “A heart-wrenching and deeply important film”, “Fearless, gripping and soulful” Helen Cox, Film4

“Alan Cumming gives a heartfelt performance layered with wit, sass and raw emotion“, “Fired by a righteous anger, Any Day Now is a poignant tale of prejudice and a distinguished addition to a fresher wave of gay cinema like Weekend and Keep The Lights On”Allan Hunter, The List, Daily Express

“engaging and emotive” Time Out London

“there’s no denying the power of Cumming, Leyva and Dillahunt’s Performances”  – Tom Long, The Detroit News

“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.” –  Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times

“Cumming is wonderful” – Farran Smith Neheme,  New York Post

“The (Alan Cumming) blazing performance it distills, conveys so ferocious a mixture of desire, hurt, defiance, courage, neediness and reckless abandon that it makes everyone else seem cowardly.” Steven Holden, The New York Times

“Travis Fine’s true-life story from the 1970s is as ruthless a tear-jerker as we have seen in many a year”  – Donald Clarke Irish Times
