Inspired by a true story and touching on legal and social issues that are more relevant now than ever, ANY DAY NOW tells a story of love, acceptance, and creating your own family. In the late 1970s, when Marco (Isaac Leyva), a teenager with down syndrome who's been abandoned by his mother, is taken in by committed couple Rudy (Alan Cumming) and Paul (Garret Dillahunt), he finds in them the family he's never had. However, when their unconventional living arrangement is discovered by the

Too much of "Any Day Now" founders in cliche and predictable table-turning and point-scoring instead of building a set of complicated characters at odds with a biased system.
Switches between a few primary modes -- agenda-mentary, romance, courtroom drama, tearjerker -- without engaging very convincingly in any of them.
Gets its point across, and its sad drama. And it spotlights a marvelous performance by Alan Cumming.
Cumming is wonderful, and you know something? Trying a little understanding sure doesn't hurt.
There's no denying the power of Cumming, Leyva and Dillahunt's performances, nor the tragedy and injustice of the situation.
"Any Day Now" has so many ways to break your heart that it seems less a question whether Travis Fine's indie drama will do it, but how.
A melodramatic but sincere film overflowing with both compassion and exasperation.
A warmly captured, nicely acted period piece social-issue drama that cycles through familiar territory but also deftly sidesteps conventional wisdom about where it may end up.
There's joy in the small moments and fierce, humanist dignity in Alan Cumming's performance.
The growing community of gay parents deserves a better reflection of their struggles than a kitschy "Kramer vs. Kramer."
A Very Special Movie approach for material that deserves nuance and patience, relying on shameless manipulation to communicate simple ideas on prejudice and parenting.
This poignant if overly sentimental twist on the child-custody drama transcends some of its melodramatic trappings.
This gay custody-battle drama beautifully delivers on every level, especially emotionally.
Though set in 1979 West Hollywood, its themes echo loudly in today's courtrooms as well through compelling characters and an unrelenting narrative.
What might have been a typical exercise in socially conscious messaging [becomes] a...touching human drama.
- Rudy: Marco didn't ask to be born to a junkie, he didn't ask to be different.
- Rudy: Oh it's the oldest story in the book... Boy meets girl, boy looses girl, boy kicks open the closet door and finally, meets Mr. Right.
