Starring Greta Lee, Teo Yoo, and John Magaro, Past Lives questions the choices we make in life and explores what it’s like to rekindle old friendships and contemplate lost love. Nora (Lee) and Hae Sung (Teo Yoo) were deeply close childhood friends in South Korea before Nora and her family emigrated to the U.S. Years later, Hae Sung finds Nora on Facebook, and the two rediscover their bond, culminating in a shared week in New York that has Nora, Hae Sung, and Nora’s husband Arthur (Magaro) questioning their choices, relationships, and the concepts of fate and destiny.
