The film will be released theatrically in North America beginning this December.Inspired by a true story, ANY DAY NOW tells of a gay couple in the 1970s that takes in an abandoned mentally handicapped teenager and becomes the family he’s never had. When their unconventional living arrangement is discovered by the authorities, the men must fight a biased legal system to adopt the child they have come to love as their own. While touching on legal and social issues that are more relevant now than ever, ANY DAY NOW also addresses universal themes of love and acceptance.The deal was negotiated by Preferred Content’s Christine D’Souza and Kevin Iwashina with Music Box Films’ William Schopf and Ed Arentz.
