Any Day Now (2012)

Director: Travis Fine

Stars: Alan Cumming, Garret Dillahunt, Isaac Leyva, Gregg Henry, Alan Rachins, Doug Spearman

In the late 1970s, when a mentally handicapped teenager is abandoned, a gay couple takes him in and becomes the family he's never had. But once the unconventional living arrangement is discovered by authorities, the men must fight a biased legal system to adopt the child they have come to love as their own.

I am not a fan of Alan Cumming. I think he is more annoying than talented. He kept me from watching this movie. I just was not interested. I had no idea that this movie was going to be as good as it was. It was so sweet and tender. It showed how gay couples were judge for their lifestyles and what they do sexually, instead of how they could be good parents. It is a sad part of history that still happens in some areas today. Gay couples cannot legally adopt children in some states and countries. This movie shows what happened to one gay couple.

Alan Cumming did a great job at bringing the drama and emotion to this movie. Having him as a drag queen, I think was a bit too much though. I know that they wanted to show opposites attract, but it was just too much. Isaac Leyva was just precious. He was wonderful in his role, and he did a great job.

This is a movie to watch. I was just so impressed with it. I would recommend this movie to anyone. It has it all: comedy, drama and sadness. If you can find a way to watch it, you should do that. Enjoy.
