Any Day Now movie scene

Garret Dillahunt (l.) and Alan Cumming struggle to keep their unconventional family together in Any Day Now.

Inspired by a true story, the 2012 drama Any Day Now chronicles the story of a gay couple who take in a teenage boy with Down Syndrome only to then wage a battle against a biased legal system that wishes to end the unconventional living arrangement.

In the late 1970s, when a teenage boy with Down Syndrome named Marco (Isaac Leyva) is abandoned by his drug-addicted mother, a gay couple, Rudy (Alan Cumming, Burlesque) and Paul (Garret Dillahunt, Looper), take him in and become the loving family he’s never had. But as Marco discovers the strong bonds of family for the first time in his life, the authorities step in to tear the boy from the only stable environment he has ever known. As the gay men fight to save the life of the child they have come to love as their own and adopt him, they must fight a legal battle where the system is stacked against them.

Directed by Travis Fine, the R-rated film co-stars Frances Fisher, Gregg Henry and Chris Mulkey.

Any Day Now rolled out to a number of of international festivals, winning 10 film fest Audience Awards over the past year, including trophies at the Chicago International Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Provincetown Film Festival and Outfest 2012. Star Cumming was also singled out by audiences at Seattle, Napa and Outfest, where he received Best Actor honors. The film received a limited release to U.S. theaters in December, 2012, earning $180,000 at the box office.
