In the trailer for ‘Sierra Burgess Is A Loser’

Barb is back, as a catfish.

Shannon Purser, the actress behind the Stranger Things fan favorite, is the star of Netflix's forthcoming film Sierra Burgess Is A Loser. A high school outsider who's just trying to figure out who she is in between college applications and standardized tests, Sierra's (Purser) world is soon turned upside down after she begins catfishing her crush.

Mistaking her for Veronica—the school’s resident mean girl and Sierra's bully—a popular jock begins texting her. Sparks fly, but that also presents a problem for the lovestruck Sierra. Her solution? She offers to tutor Veronica in exchange for help in keeping up the ruse. However, as the girls begin to form an unexpected bond, things begin to spiral out of control.

The film is a modern retelling of the 1897 Cyrano de Bergerac. The play follows Cyrano, a French cadet who falls in love with his distant cousin, Roxane, but fears he is too ugly for her. So he teams up with a more handsome officer, Christian, who is also in love with Roxane but doesn't know how articulate his feelings for her. Roxane eventually falls for Christian's romantic way with words, unaware that Cyrano is writing them.

Sierra Burgess is a Loser hits Netflix on November 7. Take a look at the trailer, below.

"Please Me" - Cardi B and Bruno Mars
"Please Me" will pair perfectly with all of the Valentine's Day candy you just bought on clearance. Trust me, there couldn't be a more perfect time to listen to this ultra-'90s R&B track.

Head Above Water - Avril Lavigne
I'm honestly jealous of whomever Avril is singing about on "Goddess."

Tacocat - Grains of Salt [OFFICIAL VIDEO] www.youtube.com

"Grains of Salt" - Tacocat
When I realized Tacocat was back, I literally turned around at my desk and yelled. It's a miracle.

"Can I Talk" - Caleb Steph
Caleb Steph's debut single proves that he's ready for the spotlight.

Betty - Betty Who
"You better recognize/ That you're wasting all my time" from "The One" is my new favorite response to every "photographer" on Tinder.

"Butterfly" - Kehlani
The only thing more beautiful than this cover art is Kehlani's voice.

SASAMI - Free (feat. Devendra Banhart) (Official Video) www.youtube.com

"Free" - SASAMI feat. Devendra Banhart
I would have never predicted a SASAMI and Devendra Banhart collaboration, but I am 100 percent not complaining.

Rex Orange County - New House www.youtube.com

"New House" - Rex Orange County
Alex O'Connor never fails to impress me with his soulful bedroom pop, and "New House" is no exception.

"Cuz I Love You" - Lizzo
Distorted guitar paired with Lizzo's belting vocals? Chills, literally. She did that!

"Heads Gonna Roll" - Jenny Lewis
Like if Stevie Nicks' voice met Father John Misty's lyrics.

"Get Well" - Donna Missal
Donna Missal tells me everything I needed to hear about breakups on "Get Well."

"Patient" - Monica Martin
Sultry and sweet.

"Whorey Heart" - TeaMarr
TeaMarrr's bouncy new song is an excellent roast of the kind of fuckboi we all know and hate.

"Ice Me Out (Remix)" - Kash Doll
Kash Doll shows that she knows her way around a beat on "Ice Me Out."

"Lips of Lips" - Tiffany Young
Definitely catch me driving around with my windows down this summer blaring "Lips on Lips."
