“Sierra Burgess is a Loser” embodies teens

The new movie, Sierra Burgess Is a Loser, has gotten a lot of attention since it came out on Sept. 7.

The movie, starring Shannon Purser and Noah Centineo, was trending on Netflix the day it came out. Part of the reason is that since the movie, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, came out, people can’t get enough of the heartthrob that is Noah Centineo. The movie itself is like a sweet Disney movie with a modern twist to it.

The film is based on how a self-conscious girl falls in love with a charming boy over phone calls and texting. The movie gets so much recognition because nowadays teens have problems with self-consciousness and they can really relate to Sierra. Throughout the film, not only does a relationship blossom but also an unexpected friendship with the “mean girl”.

Before the movie came out, Shannon Purser had made appearances in award-winning shows such as Stranger Things and Riverdale. Noah Centineo had previously been seen on The Fosters, Austin and Ally, [email protected], and To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. Since Sierra Burgess is a Loser came out, it made both Shannon and Noah bigger stars.

Critics say the movie is best described as pleasant, and also how this movie makes you think about just how deep beauty is to you. They say the butterfly-inducing romance really captures those sweet moments of falling in love.
