Past Lives is in the conversation as a BEST PICTURE candidate for this year’s Academy Awards. A film about second chances, if you missed Past Lives when we screened it this summer here’s your second chance….
A budding childhood romance between Nora and Hae Sung, classmates at a primary school in Seoul, ends abruptly when Nora’s family emigrates to Canada. Two decades later, they are reunited in New York for one fateful week as they confront notions of destiny and love, and the choices that make a life.
An deeply romantic debut feature from Korean-Canadian filmmaker and New York City playwright Celine Song (Endlings). Song’s artful aesthetic and profound character writing explore love, identity, and “In Yun,” a Korean notion of fate stemming from two people’s connection in a past life. (106 minutes)
A MASTERPIECE! A movie that liberates your tears and makes you fall in love with it. It is almost assuredly predestined to be the single best movie you see this year. – Rolling Stone
This jaw-droppingly assured freshman effort from Celine Song has been perched atop most cinephiles’ must-see lists since its triumphant debut at Sundance. It’s a DELIRIOUSLY HONEST romantic drama that is utterly singular even while it calls to mind everything from Richard Linklater to Wong Kar-wai to David Lean’s Brief Encounter. – The Observer
A ONE-OF-A-KIND MIRACLE, Past Lives is one of the best movies of the year, maybe the very best even though it’s just June. I first found this gem at Sundance five months ago and I still can’t get it out of my head and heart. – ABC News
