★★★★★ The Guardian

In Detail

The film follows two people who might be soulmates, even though they have never kissed and haven’t been in the same city for two decades.

Writer-director Celine Song modulates perfectly the delicate tonal balance of this wise, wistful film, dividing her narrative into three distinct segments and following the characters when they’re roughly 12, 24 and 36 years old. There are three superb performances at the picture’s centre, but none is more radiant than that of Greta Lee, gracefully capturing the spirit of a searching soul who seems to understand things about the nuances of love that are beyond the grasp of the rest of us. ‘Past Lives’ is a film about time, missed opportunities and enduring connections, and with an outstanding critics’ score of 98% on Rotten Tomatoes.
