Any Day Now review

Travis Fine’s ’70s-set child-custody case melodrama doesn’t so much pluck the heartstrings than tear them from your chest.
Shot in sludgy period hues, and packed with authentic homophobia, it’s a sentimental but stirring account of an LA drag queen (Alan Cummings) and a closeted lawyer’s (Garret Dillahunt) court battle to keep the teen with Down’s syndrome (Isaac Levya) they’ve taken in.
The story feels a little over-egged for a true-life tale, especially as it’s studded with torch-song opportunities for Cummings.
But the actors excel, particularly Levya, whose turn will knock you sideways.
