At first I thought this trailer was going to slip into schmaltz and melodrama, while there is a little bit of that, the trailer really does get you. Looks like Alan Cumming (X2, Goldeneye) could be in the running for some awards on this one.
Inspired by a true story from the late 1970s and touching on legal and social issues that are as relevant today as they were 35 years ago, ANY DAY NOW is a powerful tale of love, acceptance and family. When a teenager with Down syndrome (Isaac Leyva) is abandoned by his mother, a gay couple (Alan Cumming and Garret Dillahunt) takes him in and becomes the loving family he’s never had. But when their unconventional living arrangement is discovered by authorities, the men are forced to fight a biased legal system to save the life of the child they have come to love as their own. From Music Box Films.
In theaters December 14, 2012.
