Past Lives

Romance Drama


Friends reunite many years later after being separated during childhood when the family of one migrates from South Korea to Canada.

The sophisticated storyline doesn't confuse dreaming with reality, making "Past Lives" a tender but grown-up romance that transcends both time and place. The restraint played out on screen by the actors encourages audiences to hold back their emotional responses until it's barely possible not to let their eyes soften with tears. From the opening scene in a New York bar through to the credits, the actors, soundtrack, and production values of each film element are sublime. Living the dream.
