Sierra Burgess Is A Loser Free
Sierra Burgess (Shannon Purser) is definitely not mainstream in SIERRA BURGESS IS A LOSER. But she's definitely not a "loser" either. Smart, funny, and spirited, she wears her less-than-perfect body and her unfashionable wardrobe without apology. While she might envy the popular girls, of whom Veronica (Kristine Froseth) is the malicious leader, she doesn't really want to be one. Sierra knows she's better than that; still, it's hard. In a fit of meanness, Veronica hands Sierra's cell number to the very adorable Jamey (Noah Centineo), pretending it's hers. Sparkling texts and phone calls follow. The smitten Sierra can't bring herself to tell Jamey that she isn't Veronica. Matters get out of hand when Jamey, falling hard for his "digi-pal," wants to meet in person. It's a comedy of errors, complicated by Sierra making an unholy alliance with Veronica so that each can attain her heart's desire.
Sierra Burgess Is a Loser
A truly grounded, engaging performance by Shannon Purser, along with a new twist on the Cyrano theme, keep things moving and emotions ascending in this inventive teen romance with a soul. What's more, Sierra Burgess Is a Loser is graced by the presence of Lea Thompson and Alan Ruck, 1980s and 1990s teen stars now playing parents, as well as Chrissy Metz in a savagely unhappy turn, and RJ Cyler bringing his unique take on what could have been a caricature. The movie also takes a closer look at the "mean girl" who helps drive the plot. While Veronica is still imperious, spontaneously cruel upon occasion, and shallow, she's given a backstory and a home that makes her behavior understandable. She learns something from Sierra, and it changes her for the better; it gives the film more depth, too.
Shannon Purser (Stranger Things, Riverdale) stars as Sierra Burgess, who is seen as a loser by the popular crowd in her high school. She's trying to figure out who she is with her best friend, Dan (RJ Cyler), by her side trying to serve as the voice of reason. That would be easier for him to do if she listened to his advice, especially when it comes to Jamey (To All the Boys I've Loved Before's Noah Centineo). 041b061a72
