Today is the day! The Tearsmith is officially out, and it's definitely one of the new Netflix movies that you should add to your watchlist. Read along to learn everything there is to know about it, including who's in the cast.

The Tearsmith, otherwise known as Fabbricante di lacrime, is an Italian romantic drama movie directed by Alessandro Genovesi from a screenplay he co-wrote with Eleonora Fiorini. If the movie's title sounds familiar to you, it's probably because you read the novel it's based on. It's based on the bestselling book of the same name by Erin Doom.

It tells the complicated love story of two teens with a troubled past. Nica and Rigel grew up together at an orphanage called The Grave, which was run by an abusive matron. But they didn't really get along while there. At 17 years old, Nica's dream of being adopted finally comes true and she's over the moon about this good news. Well, that's until her new adoptive parents decide to adopt Rigel too.

Now, they must live together under the same roof and pretend to get along for their parents' sake. But wait! There's obvious romantic tension between the two no matter how hard they try to fight it. Could this forbidden love be both of their undoing? Find out by watching The Tearsmith on Netflix.
