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?

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.

Cumming is the linchpin, and the actor does an exceptional job of moving across the vast galaxy of universal emotions about partners and parenthood. He takes us to the heart of the matter in ways that matter most. Full Review
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. Full Review

It's one thing to call a film about homophobia and human rights Any Day Now; it's another to actually have your character sing "I Shall Be Released" in full at the end. The intent is righteous. The dramatic overkill is deadly. Full Review
Its most redeeming quality is that it isn't so quick to neuter its queer characters into a package-friendly "gay couple" aesthetic a la Modern Family. Full Review
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. Full Review
