The East End Does Film: Any Day Now

HM's Alex gives us her must watch HOT picks from the EEFF 2013 roster, here's Any Day Now.
Any+Day+Now

Any Day Now is perhaps one of the best films that I had never heard of, until now.

Alan Cumming leads a superb minimal cast in this indie flick about a homosexual couple fighting to legally adopt an abandoned teen with Downs Syndrome (Isaac Leyva). You really couldn’t make this up, and its actually based on a true story. It’s also set in the 1970s when being homosexual was shy of being a felony, and where raising children as part of such a union was definitely a no no. There is nothing shocking about sexual preferences these days, but the laws being passed are still so recent. This
film will make you cry and if it doesn’t give you a lump in your throat, then I’d question if you were even human. Cumming and Garret Dillahunt as the beautiful couple Rudy Donatello, a drag-act night club singer and Paul Fieger, a recently ousted defense lawyer, deliver some of the best performances I have seen in a while, admittedly Cumming’s accent is a little …off, but you’ll look past all of that once the well written script and even better display of actors gets underway.
