Set in 1979 and inspired by a true story touching on legal and social issues that are more relevant than ever, Any Day Now weaves a tale of love, acceptance, and creating one’s own family.
When Marco, a teenager with Down’s syndrome who’s been abandoned by his mother, is taken in by committed couple Rudy and the closeted Paul, he finds in them the family he’s never had. However, when their unconventional living arrangement is discovered by the authorities, Rudy and Paul must fight a biased legal system to adopt the child they have come to love as their own. Strong acting and the chemistry between Cumming and Dillahunt raise the film above conventional courtroom drama fare.
“A well-realised time-capsule of a repressive era, and a stirring document of a brave fight against prejudice.” – Ashley Clarke, SIGHT & SOUND
