Then there’s the film Cha Cha Real Smooth, which stars newcomer Cooper Raiff alongside Dakota Johnson. It’s a great character film that captivated audiences (and Apple, which bought the movie) at Sundance. Cooper Raiff, who wrote and directed the film, is a name you’re going to be hearing for years. We’ll have an interview with him coming later in the week as well.
