Celine Song’s remarkable debut is a rare mature adult drama of inexpressible connections.
Nora and Hae Sung, two deeply connected childhood friends, are wrenched apart after Nora’s family emigrates from South Korea. Two decades later, they are reunited in New York for one fateful week as they confront notions of destiny, love, and the choices that make a life. This heartrending modern romance has been labelled one of the most effective films of the year and won the Audience Award at Sundance Film Festival: London 2023.
★★★★★ “A must-see story of lost loves, childhood crushes and changing identities” – THE GUARDIAN

★★★★ – THE INDEPENDANT
“Wry, adult and moving, but not coercively so… Past Lives may be a weepie, but it’s a hyper-sophisticated one” – THE FT
