Travis Fine

Any Day Now Trailer

Every once in a while a movie gets made that’s quite clearly designed for the express purpose of making everyone who watches it bawl their eyes out. Any Day Now is one of those movies. The first few seconds of its new trailer make it look like it might be a fun, ’70s-set romance about a newly out of the closet gay man learning something about life and love thanks to a new relationship with a free spirit – a manic pixie dreamboy movie, if you will – but once it introduces the drama, it goes full bore with it and just refuses to stop. More than being a simple tearjerker, this one looks like it’s going to leave your tear ducts sore and feeling violated. The basic story is that Alan Cumming and Garret Dillahunt are a gay couple trying to navigate the murky and prejudiced waters of the ’70s court system so that they can adopt a mentally challenged boy who lives down the hall from them and is being neglected by his crappy, awful mother. I know, right?



Inspired by an moving true story, Travis Fine‘s Any Day Now may be set in the ’70s, but the story’s elements feel like a story ripped from today’s headlines. The film stars Alan Cumming and Garret Dillahunt as Rudy and Paul, a happy (though closeted) couple who discover something truly unexpected in their neighbor’s apartment – teen Marco (Isaac Leyva), abandoned by his drug-addicted mother and left to his own devices. Even worse? Marco has Down syndrome, and no one else in his life is able or equipped to handle his needs. Except Rudy and Paul. The pair eventually take in Marco and begin to form a happy and stable family together. But when their arrangement is discovered, and Rudy and Paul’s relationship is outed, it kicks of a legal battle that will decide just who Marco really belongs with. With a compelling story and an extremely talented cast (that also includes Frances Fisher), Any Day Now should emerge as one of the highlights of this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. After the break, check out the exclusive poster debut for Any Day Now, along with a batch of new stills from the film.
