Library Cinema: Past Lives


Library Cinema takes place in the Dunaway Community Room. Doors open at 2PM, the film starts at 2:30PM. Tickets are $10.00, cash only. Popcorn is included.

A remarkable debut for writer-director Celine Song, Past Lives uses the bonds between its sensitively sketched central characters to support trenchant observations on the human condition. 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.

“A movie that liberates your tears and makes you fall in love with it. It is almost assuredly predestined to be the single best movie you see this year.”- Rolling Stone. 

“A confident entry in the canon of great romances—one that expands the emotional scope of what a love story can be.” – The Atlantic. 

“Past Lives feels so deliciously restrained that it makes even quiet dramas seem histrionic. And yet it’s a wide emotional field that gives its characters room to breathe... if Past Lives isn’t 2023’s best film, we’re in for an incredible year of cinema.” – The Denver Post. 

120 min. (USA 2023). Ends at 4:15pm. P-13.
