By all accounts, September is a light month for Netflix movies, both new and throwbacks. There are very few flashy showstoppers (at least, flashy showstoppers that haven’t already streamed on the platform) and not many titles that stop most binge-watchers in their tracks. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of watchable comfort food movies. While it might not be your cup of tea, the inspirational drama film The World We Make is one of the month’s top new releases.

The World We Make centers on 18-year-old equestrian Lee Grove (Rose Reid) and her star football player slash gifted academic boyfriend Jordan Bishop (Caleb Castille). Lee and Jordan are preparing to build a life together, but the racial bias in their town tests the strength of their relationship. The film’s logline claims the small town is “otherwise progressive,” so it’s rather curious that the town suddenly finds an issue with a young interracial couple in love, but it’s sadly not far-fetched at all.

From director Brian Baugh, who also helmed the 2016 film I’m Not Ashamed, The World We Make appears to be another faith-based film meant to help enlighten those who simply need enlightening. The film currently doesn’t have a rating on Rotten Tomatoes, though we’d venture to assume it wouldn’t be too high given these films aren’t typically the kind of fare that wows critics. But The World We Make will certainly find its audience that loves to revel in these kinds of films when the movie begins streaming this September on Netflix.
