I saw this movie about a month ago at the Landmark E Street Cinema in Washington, DC. Glad to see this now finally has a DVD release date.
"Any Day Now" (2012 release; 94 min.) brings the story of Rudy (played by Alan Cumming) and Paul (played by Garret Dillahunt), how they meet in California in 1979, and fall in love. Rudy comes to care for his neighbor's teengage boy with Down syndrome (Marco, played by Isaac Leyva), as Marco's mom is a drug addict and in any event doesn't care for Marco one bit. Eventually Rudy wants to adopt Marco and Paul (an attorney) tries to build a legal case for it. This of course creates all kinds of problems, as the justice system is not designed/prepared for a gay couple to adopt. To give away more of the plot would ruin your viewing experience so you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out, although I will just say that I did not see the end coming AT ALL.
Several comments: first, while this movie is about a gay couple, please don't call it 'a movie about gays', as "Any Day Now" simply uses these circumstances to showcase the absurdities and shortcomings in the California legal system of 30 years ago. Second, Alan Cumming gives a brilliant performance as Rudy, and confirms yet again what an enormous talent he is (watch him sing "I Shall Be Released"!). Third, the movie is a great time capsule of the late 70s/early 80s, with remarkable attention to the visual details of those times. Last but certainly not least, the 'disco' soundtrack to this movie is a lot of fun, I heard songs I had not listened to in many, many years and while there are a couple of disco staples (Marty Balin's "Miracles" and Thelma Houston's "Don't Leave Me This Way"), there are a lot of other less obvious nuggets as well such as France Joli's "Come To Me" and Betty Padgett "It Would Be a Shame". The closing credits bring a brand new song from Rufus Wrainwright, a very nice "Metaphorical Blanket". Bottom line, this is one of those "little" movies that could, and I far more enjoyed this movie than I thought I would. "Any Day Now" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
