Netflix films with strong female leads: Sierra Burgess Is a Loser

A modern retelling of the 1897 play Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand, Sierra Burgess Is a Loser stars Shannon Purser as the title character, the biggest loser in high school who must team up with the most popular girl (Kristine Froseth) to win over their crushes following a case of mistaken identity. While this original Netflix movie is a love story at its heart, the best relationship featured in the flick is the friendship that develops between the two female leads. Directed by Ian Samuels from a screenplay by Lindsey Beer, the film also stars Noah Centineo and RJ Cyler.
