Sierra Burgess Is A Loser
From the Daily Dot
Netflix's latest offering in the rom-com resurgence follows the titular Sierra Burgess (Stranger Things' Shannon Purser), a smart and awkward teenage girl who balances confidence and insecurity, often at the same time. Later, Veronica (Kristine Froseth), a cheerleader and one of Sierra's tormentors, gives Sierra's phone number to sensitive jock Jamey (To All the Boys I've Loved Before's Noah Centineo) so she doesn't have to give him her number. By the time she learns who she's supposed to be, Sierra's already fallen for Jamey. She recruits Veronica to help her keep up the façade in exchange for tutoring Veronica so that she can catch the eye of a college boy who rejected her. While Sierra Burgess offers a sweet and unlikely friendship between two girls from completely different social circles, it can't quite shake off its slightly creepy premise.
