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
Depictions of custody battles have become a cinematic staple, but few register with the heartfelt emotion of Any Day Now. show more
Cumming always gives good value, and his regular bursts into cabaret numbers are certainly an added bonus. Yet this instinctively ironic actor doesn't seem best suited to play the movie's most sentimental creation. A mouthy, heart-of-gold construct, Rudy dresses like Ratso Rizzo and comes on like The Fonz. 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.
