I had the pleasure of joining The Matinee’s Ryan McNeil on his podcast The Matineecast to discuss Cooper Raiff’s Cha Cha Real Smooth. Over the course of the episode, we talk about whether Raiff’s film deserved the praise it received at Sundance, Dakota Johnson’s work in the film, the portrayal of a teen with autism, and much more. You can find the episode wherever you listen to podcasts (e.g. Apple Podcasts, Spotify, etc.) or over at The Matinee via the link below:
