Weekend Watching Tips: Cha Cha Real Smooth, Home and More


We hardly watch traditional TV anymore. Streaming video services like Apple TV+ (try for free), Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video are more important than ever. But local providers such as Videoland, Film1 and Ziggo also have plenty to offer. More series are added every week and it is nice if you know which series, films and documentaries really stand out. We have therefore made a selection.

Cha Cha Real Smooth is now available on Apple TV+. This tale of unconventional love won an Audience Award at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival. 22-year-old Andrew has just graduated college and has no idea what he will do with his life.

When Andrew meets a local mother and her daughter, he suddenly sees what he is going to do.
