Nora and Hae Sung, two deeply connected childhood friends, are wrest apart after Nora’s family emigrates from South Korea. 20 years later, they are reunited for one fateful week as they confront notions of love and destiny. A remarkable debut for writer-director Celine Song, "Past Lives" uses the bonds between its sensitively sketched central characters to support trenchant observations on the human condition. A must-see for any cinephile and currently the highest rated film of 2023 on Metacritic. Rated PG-13; 1 hour, 45 minutes.
