At age 47, it seems Alan Cumming has never been better. His co-starring work in the TV drama series "The Good Wife" has so far earned him two Emmy nominations, and it looks like the 70s-set adoption-drama "Any Day Now" will also shine some positive light on the Scottish-born actor.
Check out the film's just-released trailer which showcases Cumming as a compassionate gay man who convinces his closeted lawyer partner/husband (Raising Hope's Garret Dillahunt) to adopt a neighbor boy with Down Syndrome (newcomer Isaac Leyva) who has been abandoned by his drug-addicted mother. Co-written and directed by Travis Fine, the movie was inspired by a real legal case that took place in the '70s. When it premiered at this year's Tribeca Film Festival, the movie won the audience award. Music Box Films will be releasing the drama in select theaters starting on December 14th.
Inspired by a true story from the late 1970s and touching on legal and social issues that are as relevant today as they were 35 years ago, ANY DAY NOW is a powerful tale of love, acceptance and family. When a teenager with Down syndrome (Isaac Leyva) is abandoned by his mother, a gay couple (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 to save the life of the child they have come to love as their own.
