Past Lives feels so deliciously restrained that it makes even quiet dramas seem histrionic. And yet it’s a wide emotional field that gives its characters room to breathe ... if Past Lives isn’t 2023’s best film, we’re in for an incredible year of cinema.” John Wenzel, Denver Post.


Nora (Greta Lee) and Jung Hae Sung (Teo Yoo), two deeply connected childhood friends, are wrest 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, in this modern romance.

PG-13, 106 minutes
