‘Cha Cha Real Smooth,’ Tells a Tale of Unconventional Love
The film tells the story of 22-year-old college graduate, Andrew (played by Cooper Raif). Fresh out of college, Andrew was stuck with his family in Jersey. He did not know what to do with his life. But he excelled in doing one thing and that was getting the party started. With this talent, he landed a job as a motivational dancer at the bar and bat mitzvahs for his younger brother’s classmates.
Andrew befriended a local mother named Domino (played by Dakota Johnson), and her daughter Lola. He then discovered a future he wanted, but unfortunately, it might not be his own.
