“Any Day Now” Opening in Select Theaters Today
December 14, 2012 by HRC staff
This post comes from HRC Editorial and Digital Media Intern Leanne Naramore:
The critically-acclaimed film “Any Day Now” debuts today to select theaters.
“Any Day Now” tells a story that will leave you feeling challenged and genuinely moved. It paints a powerful picture of the inequalities still facing people with disabilities and the LGBT community, and it is an urgent reminder of why we must continue tirelessly working towards equal human rights.
"Any Day Now" is inspired by a true story from the late 1970s, but it touches on legal and social issues that are as relevant today as they were 35 years ago. When a teenager with Down syndrome (Isaac Leyva) is abandoned by his mother, a gay couple, played by 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.
HRC partnered with Music Box Films to present free screenings of “Any Day Now” Wednesday in DC, NYC and LA, and theaters in select cities throughout the country will debut the film today. Discover where you can see “Any Day Now” at www.anydaynowmovie.com.
