Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Any Day Now is an affecting, 1970s-set drama about gay parenting rights that has strong themes of tolerance and love. But it also deals with fairly mature issues/scenarios, including a junkie neglecting her mentally disabled son (and what happens to him because of it), a gross miscarriage of justice, and what it's like to remain closeted about your sexual orientation to keep your job. Expect some swearing ("s--t" and "damn"), drinking (at bars) and drug use, as well as a same-sex couple kissing in bed.
- Sexual Content
- A loving couple is shown kissing in bed, their chests exposed. Some sexual innuendo.
- A woman screams and neglects her child and disrespects her neighbor. Some screaming arguments.
- Language includes "s--t," "damn," "bitch," and derogatory terms used against homosexuals.
- Social Behavior
- Families aren't all the same, and home/stability can come in many forms. People step up to help those in need. But on the flip side, society unfortunately doesn't always support people's efforts to help those in need.
- Not applicable
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- A woman is shown snorting coke while her young, mentally disabled son is nearby. There are discussions about her being a junkie and picking up men to support her habit. Characters drink at bars.
