Any Day Now trailer, Cumming leads

AnyDayNow.jpgAlan Cumming is superb. He's a great charismatic actor, he's Scottish, and I love so many of his roles, I particularly loved his stage performance of Macbeth he did recently but even as Eli Gold in The Good Wife he just oozes on screen charisma and charm and you can't get enough of him.

So that's the draw for me to Any Day Now, a true life story of a gay couple in the seventies who take in the teenager who is abandoned by their neighbour and then fight to keep custody of him as they begin to gel as a family.

Next to Alan Cumming is Garret Dillahunt, they play the couple who fight for their rights to look after the teenage boy with Dillahunt's character a lawyer and, as the trailer shows, the fight turns to the fact that they are a gay couple rather than their ability as parents and the best thing for the boy.

Here's the blurb for Any Day Now:

In the late 1970s, when a mentally handicapped teenager is abandoned, a gay couple takes him in and becomes the family he's never had. But once the unconventional living arrangement is discovered by authorities, the men must fight a biased legal system to adopt the child they have come to love as their own.

Now here's the trailer from TrailerAddict. It looks like a strong and emotive film and Cummings as well as Dillahunt look great. I know it will tug at all the heartstrings that you'd expect but it does suggest that it grows into something much more important.
