Any Day Now opens in a bar where Alan Cumming as Rudy, a drag queen, is singing the 70s disco hit Come to Me. Across the room, Rudy spots the handsome man of his dreams and seduces him with his performance. The dreamboat is a closeted district attorney named Paul, played by Garret Dillahunt of Raising Hope.
Yet Any Day Now is about so much more. Although its a period piece, the inspiring story couldnt be more contemporary as Rudy and Paul fight to adopt a special needs child severely neglected by his drug-addicted mother while they have to hide the true nature of their relationship from society. After raising him with his jailed mothers permission, Rudy and Paul lose Marco (played by 22-year-old newcomer Isaac Leyva) when authorities discover their living arrangement and they have to face off with the legal system to win their son back. To say more about the plot would spoil it, but the love between Rudy, Paul, and Marco, a teen with Down syndrome, never waivers and is always completely believable.
Directed by Travis Fine, this film-festival darling will break your heart as often as it warms it, and it will leave you deep in thought over love, equality, and the meaning of family.

Here in VT, almost all adoptions are by homosexual couples. Normal people have almost no chance of adopting a child.

Damn. Garrett Dillahunt was brilliant in Deadwood. He played two very different characters and did it well. Guess I have to cross him off my list now.
