Tribeca 2012 Diary: Any Day Now Director Travis Fine

Sometimes the '70s weren't about wide lapels and avocado-colored kitchen appliances. Sometimes they were about ignorance, fear, and bigotry. In Any Day Now, a gay couple (Alan Cumming and Garret Dillahunt) rescue a teen with Down syndrome (Isaac Leyva) from his abusive mother, but when they try to make their de facto family legal, the roadblocks thrown in their way have nothing to do with their suitability as parents and everything to do with a nation that, some 10 years after the fact, still hadn't received the big news from Stonewall.
