Our choices for some of this year's don't-miss LGBT movies.



Any Day Now

A gripping story of an unusual family forming in 1970s Los Angeles, with a drag performer (Alan Cumming) and a closeted prosecuting attorney (Garret Dillahunt) falling in love with each other and then seeking to adopt an abandoned boy with Down syndrome. Despite the gay-themed storyline, director Travis Fine sees his film as relevant for all audiences. "After having experienced an incredibly painful loss with my oldest child," he recalls, "I realized in a very deep and personal way that, while the film I wanted to make was specifically about a gay struggle, this is a story that can be felt and understood by anyone who has had someone they love taken from them." Fine's drama won the Audience Award at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. July 21, 11:30 p.m., Directors Guild of America.
