Nora and Hae Sung, classmates at a primary school in Seoul, have their deep friendship ended abruptly when Nora’s family emigrates to Canada.
Two decades later, they meet in New York and over one week address notions of chance and circumstance and the choices people make that create a life.
Past Lives is an authentically beautiful romantic debut feature from playwright Celine Song. Exploring “In Yun’’, a Korean notion of connection between people – the string of fate which tangles together across different lifetimes, it subtly addresses the tension between a life longed for and the life lived.
With spellbinding performances from Greta Lee, Teo Yoo, and John Magaro it brims with compassion for how complicated the human condition can be.
★★★★★ ''It’s a beautiful, transporting film but one made with both feet firmly on the ground.'' - Benjamin Lee, The Guardian
★★★★★ "Celine Song’s tender, time-spanning romance is an exquisitely judged wonder. A directorial debut of remarkable poise and power." - Matt Maytum, Total Film
