Winner of 10 Audience Awards at film festivals around the country and starring the amazing Alan Cumming, 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 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. 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. Director Travis Fine joins us for a conversation on the making of his “ripped from the headlines” story of courage and love.

“Cumming’s performance [is] a perfect balance of flamboyance, humanity, vulnerability, paternal love and righteous anger…it’s the best work he’s done to date.” – David Fear, Time Out NY
“Powerful! Superb! Depictions of custody battles have become a cinematic staple, but few register with the heartfelt emotion of Any Day Now.” – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
