This was an excellent movie, I was shocked at the end but then I wasn't surprised given that in the 70s everything wasn't in the favor of two gay men. I'm glad that that everyone who prevented Marco from going back to the two men, in the court system received a letter illustrating the outcome.
There was a lot in this movie to like but the court scenario where Garett Dillahunt (Rudy's partner) stressed the obvious that nobody wanted Marco being a down syndrome child, and yet these two men loved him, and were his only safety net.
I recommend this movie. Also some interesting actors show up too, many A listing Actors.
