Nora and Hae Sung, 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 heartrending modern romance.

“Unravels as a marvel, cemented in a rare balance of wit and grief beautifully embodied by [John] Magaro and [Greta] Lee.” —Rafaela Sales Ross, Little White Lies

“Diverging from romances in which lovers are expected to move heaven, earth, and themselves in order to make a moment of love last forever, PAST LIVES asks us to embrace the changes that come with time.” —Pat Brown, Slant Magazine

“Might just be the most singularly exquisite film of this year’s Sundance.” —Tomris Laffly, Harper's Bazaar
