Movie Info

ANYTHING is an unconventional romance about Earl, a middle-aged widower who moves to Los Angeles to be with family, and who asserts his independence by renting an apartment in a sketchy neighborhood full of "colorful" characters. Most colorful of all is Frida, a transgender next door neighbor who happens to find Earl-the quintessential Southern Gentleman-just as exotic as he finds her. Forming a relationship that is at once unexpected and inevitable, this mismatched pair give each other much-needed trust, respect... and more. Starring John Carroll Lynch, Matt Bomer, and Maura Tierney.

  • It's Lynch who carries the movie, delivering a quiet, contemplative performance as a man trying to rebuild his life after losing everything.

  • An implausible romantic drama with good intentions that can't overcome its silly contrivances.

  • McNeil plays it way too safe. Trying to have it both ways, he satisfies no one.

    May 17, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It's sensitively written, humorously human, warmly acted, and admirably resistant to most of the obvious drag-queen cliches.

  • Anything is one more casualty in Hollywood's long history of ransacking transgender stories, which it does under the guise of paying homage without paying coins to those it claims to represent

  • Writer-director Timothy McNeil...crafts a fairly moving tribute to the notion, as Lin-Manuel Miranda once put it, that "love is love is love."
