ANY DAY NOW, starring Alan Cumming, comes to Austin for one night only! Polari is teaming up with our friends at the Stateside Theatre to bring you ANY DAY NOW, a galvanizing tale of love, acceptance and family featuring a critically acclaimed lead performance from beloved “out” actor Alan Cumming!
ANY DAY NOW
Monday, March 4th
Stateside at the Paramount (719 Congress Ave.)
Doors @ 6:30pm | Film @ 7:00 pm
Inspired by a true story from the late 1970s, ANY DAY NOW touches on legal and social issues that are as relevant to our communities today as they were 35 years ago. When a teenager with Down syndrome (Isaac Leyva) is abandoned by his mother, a gay couple (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.
Winner of the Audience Award for Best Feature Film at Tribeca, Outfest, and eight other film festivals around the country, and a GLAAD nominee for Best Film of 2012, this Austin theatrical premiere is not to be missed! Bring your tissues and be prepared to be deeply moved by the film that THE NEW YORK TIMES calls “an outraged, unblinking depiction of institutionalized homophobia,” and the HOLLYWOOD REPORTER raves is “Powerful! Superb! Depictions of custody battles have become a cinematic staple, but few register with the heartfelt emotion of ANY DAY NOW.”
