ANY DAY NOW is a powerful tale of love, acceptance and family. Winner of 10 Audience Awards at film festivals around the country, the film is coming to The Palace Danbury, for one night only, on February 16.
When Marco, a teenager with Down syndrome is abandoned by his mother, a gay couple, Rudy and Paul, take 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.
The film stars Alan Cumming (“The Good Wife,” “ Cabaret”) who shows off his vocal abilities and comic flair. Garret Dillahunt ("Raising Hope," "Deadwood") perfectly conveys Paul’s quiet strength, and Isaac Levya, an actor with down syndrome, is deeply touching as a special needs teen who finds himself a helpless legal pawn.
Inspired by a true story from the late 1970s, the film touches on the legal and social issues of a gay adoption, and the near impossibility of a gay couple trying to adopt any child, even a special-needs child. These issues are as relevant today as they were 35 years ago.
“Depictions of custody battles have become a cinematic staple, but few register with the heartfelt emotion of Any Day Now.” ~ Hollywood Reporter
