Watch: Stirring New Trailer for Travis Fine's 'Any Day Now' (VIDEO)

By Chris Pomorski | Indiewire November 13, 2012 at 11:32AM

In its opening moments, the new trailer for Travis Fine's "Any Day Now," which has already won a slew of festival audience awards--including at Seattle, Tribeca, Chicago and Woodstock--looks to preview a lighthearted film about drag and disco culture in late 1970s Hollywood. But soon enough, a slow, mournful piano line and the exchange of heartfelt smiles between Rudy (Alan Cumming) and Marco (Isaac Leyva), a young teenager with Down Syndrome, let us know that Mr. Fine has a weightier agenda in mind. Inspired by actual events, "Any Day Now" is the story of a gay couple's (Cumming and Garret Dillahunt) fight against a bigoted legal system to keep the disabled child they've rescued from a troubled home. With a layered, charismatic performance from Cumming and the film's blend of salient social issues with warm depictions of unconventional family life, "Any Day Now" is sure to delight all this holiday season.
