My inner tweenie is elated by today’s release of ‘Sierra Burgess is a Loser,’ especially on the heels of my two favorite Netflix rom-coms, ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ and ‘The Kissing Booth.’ It’s an exciting time for teen flicks, and it’s especially exciting that Netflix has introduced us to some new stars, including the very endearing Noah Centineo, who seems to have stayed humble on the heels of his massive shot into the fame stratosphere.
THE STARS OF SIERRA BURGESS
The film also stars Shannon Purser, Kristine Froseth, and RJ Cyler. Directed by Ian Samuels and written by Lindsay Beer, the story centers on Sierra (Shannon Purser), an intelligent teen who does not fall into the shallow definition of high school pretty but, in a case of mistaken identity that results in unexpected romance, must team with the popular girl (Kristine Froseth) in order to win her crush (Noah Centineo).
The release of today’s Netflix film is accompanied by a new soundtrack, which was scored by Leland (Troye Sivan, Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez) and Bram Inscore (Troye Sivan). It has nine original songs, and it’s the first release on Leland’s own label Good Pop in partnership with Sony/ATV and Black Label Media. The soundtrack features performances by Sabrina Carpenter, MNEK, Betty Who, Allie X, K.I.D, Carlie Hanson along with a duet between Leland and Vincint called “Middle of Love.” A full track listing can be found below, and you can find it on any streaming platform.
