Drama
Based on an agonizing true event, Any Day Now tells the story about a gay couple fighting to gain legal custody of a teenager with Down’s syndrome in the late 1970s. What should have been a compelling tale about unconditional love in the face of discrimination and a biased legal system instead feels like a Lifetime movie of the week, complete with numerous saccharine music montages and bad wigs. Alan Cumming and Garret Dillahunt, two of the finest actors today, try to steer their way through a clunky script with mixed results. Cumming has brilliant moments, assuming you can ignore his lousy “Noo Yawk” accent, but Dillahunt seems to be sleepwalking any time he’s not shouting out a hackneyed courtroom speech. Sadly, the message of this film is much too relevant today. So, while Any Day Now is bogged down with numerous missteps, it still manages to drive its point home.
