"Any Day Now" follows the struggle of a gay couple in late-1970s Los Angeles to adopt an abandoned teenage boy with Down syndrome.
Depictions of custody battles have become a cinematic staple, but few register with the heartfelt emotion of "Any Day Now."

And the issues raised by this film remain all too sadly relevant.
