New Adoption Film Shines at Tribeca

At the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival a couple weeks ago, the winner of the Heineken Award for narrative film went to Travis Fine’s Any Day Now. Any Day Now stars Alan Cummings (X-2, Spy Kids) and Garret Dillahunt (Raising Hope) as a gay couple in the 1970’s who fight a legal battle to adopt a teenager with Down syndrome. The film has received great reviews and sends out a positive, uplifting message in favor of gay adoption. The film takes place in the 70’s, but the topic of gay adoption isn’t old news. Adoptions by LGBT couples are becoming more popular each year. Statistics have been gathered that support gay adoption as being on par with heterosexual couples when it comes to raising well-adjusted adopted children.
