Past Lives

Past Lives tells the story of Na Young and Hae Sung, two childhood friends who lost touch after Na’s family emigrated to Canada. Na’s parents made her change her name to Nora (Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’s Greta Lee) to assimilate themselves into their new culture.

Hae (Decision to Leave’s Teo Yoo) has never forgotten Na. After finishing his military service, Hae reaches out twelve years later through Nora’s father’s social media page; he’s a filmmaker, not realizing Na changed her name. After two decades, after falling in and out of touch, they meet for one weekend in New York City.

Celine Song’s confident feature debut offers a spine-tingling tale of star-crossed souls spanning 24 years, earning the 2023 audience award at Sundance Film Festival: London.
