A new comedy-drama called CHA CHA REAL SMOOTH won the audience award at this year’s SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL, and I can see why. Newcomer Cooper Raif wrote directed and stars in this realistic and bittersweet coming of age film about a 22 year old new college graduate who moves back home to live with his parents while he figures out what he’s wants to do with his life. There he becomes infatuated with a woman ten years older than he is played by the luminous Dakota Johnson. CHA CHA REAL SMOOTH is a satisfying mix of tenderness, warmth and good humor.
