Winner of 10 Audience Awards at film festivals, including Tribeca, Any Day Now is a powerful tale of love, acceptance and family. When a teenager with Down syndrome (Leyva) is abandoned by his mother, a gay couple (Cumming and Dillahunt) take him in and become 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. Inspired by a true story from the late 1970s, Any Day Now touches on legal and social issues that are as relevant today as they were 35 years ago.

‘A fearless, gripping and honest drama that sidesteps schmaltz. Alan Cumming gives the performance of his career.’ – Helen Cox, Film4
