Any Day Now Review

Image for Any Day Now

West Hollywood, 1979. Struggling muso and drag performer Rudy Donatello (Cumming) meets closeted district attorney Paul Fleiger (Dillahunt). When pair try to take guardianship over a 14-year-old boy with Down syndrome, they find their relationship picked over in the full glare of the law.


Institutionalised homophobia in ’70s America is examined in this fact-based drama about an offbeat gay couple seeking custody of a neglected Down’s Syndrome teenager. Sincere, compassionate and played with a restraint that makes its denouement all the more poignant.

A moving and poignant true-life tale.
