I missed showings of Travis Fine‘s Any Day Now (Music Box Films, 12.14) at last spring’s Tribeca Film Festival (where it won the Heineken Award for Narrative Film) and the recent Hamptons Film Festival, but the word has been excellent all along. I don’t know why I never paid attention. This morning Marshall Fine declared that Alan Cumming‘s performance as “a cross-dressing crooner-cum-caregiver” (in the words of Variety‘s Boyd Von Hoeij) is a must-see and a breakout.

Here are raves from Variety‘s Von Hoeij, from Screen Daily and from two or three Rotten Tomatoes stragglers. I’m waiting for Marina Bailey to start showing it in Los Angeles.
