  • The biggest strength of the movie is the chemistry between Cumming and Isaac Leyva, a first-time feature film actor with Down syndrome, who does as much to make these scenes work as the experienced actors he's sharing scenes with. show more

  • The takeaways of the film are horror and hope: horror that institutionalized homophobia was so pervasive, hope that that intolerance is a thing of the past. show more

  • Director Travis Fine gives his period details flourish and lets Cumming and Dillahunt create well-rounded characters, but Any Day Now winds up treacly. show more

    I hated this movie because it was so sad ********* honestly the most amazing film I have seen in awhile. Brilliant performance by Alan Cumming truly inspiring, I would recommend this film to anyone.

    4stars--Not because it was a dynamic movie but because it was an all-around delivered film. The script was a bit melodramatic in parts but one assumes that in real life it would have been melodramatic in parts. Brilliant performance by Alan Cumming and supported by Dillahunt & Leyva. In many ways the film is a gift to us all as if it is asking us: What on earth are we calling ourselves doing? Sometimes we just don\'t get it because we just don\'t care. (Gay leading characters but no explicit sex.) This is a story based on a real life story. Bravo!!!

    Brilliant performance by Alan Cumming, another great example of the wide range of his abilities by Garret Dillahunt, and a beautiful job by newcomer Isaac Levya. Writer/director Travis Fine did a wonderful job with this film. Just make sure you have a good supply of tissues on hand.
