Alan Cumming was famous (and out) for quite a while now, but it's been a while since he's been front and center. "Any Day Now," playing this week at the Tribeca Film Festival, is a subtle, simple showcase. It's the story of a mismatched gay couple in the 70's who find themselves taking care of a child with Down's Syndrome and fighting for their parental rights, fighting institutionalized and socialized homophobia. This decades-old screenplay finally hits the screen with style, humor, and heartache.
Something that is starting to change in movies is that we're seeing more actors coming out than ever before, and suddenly we're seeing more gay stories being told. In the past, you know, it was always a straight celebrity getting acclaim for playing gay and being risky.
