Past Lives

Winner of 79 international awards and critically lauded as the best narrative film of 2023 by MetaCritic (with a 94/100 rating!), Past Lives is now available to stream on Showmax.

This poignant story follows Nora and Hae Sung, childhood friends separated by Nora’s family’s emigration from South Korea. Two decades later, fate reunites them in New York for a pivotal week, forcing them to confront destiny, love, and the life-defining choices they’ve made.

Past Lives isn’t just a critical darling; it’s an award-winning phenomenon. The film garnered nominations for Academy Awards like Motion Picture of the Year and Best Original Screenplay. Stellar performances by Greta Lee and Teo Yoo earned them nominations for Critics Choice Best Actress and BAFTA Best Actor, respectively.

Past Lives has a 94/100 rating on MetaCritic – the highest of last year. Rolling Stone calls it, “A stunning, pitch-perfect romance”; Variety says, “Celine Song’s exceptional debut will have audiences swooning”; and The Hollywood Reporter writes, “It’s difficult to convey the multilayered beauty of Past Lives beyond just urging people to see it and lose themselves in its transfixing spell.”

But Past Lives isn’t your only option on Showmax!

They also boast the three biggest box office hits of 2023 – Barbie, The Super Mario Bros. Movie – and the 2024 Oscar winner for Best Picture, Oppenheimer.

So, whether you’re seeking a heart-wrenching romance or blockbuster entertainment, Showmax has you covered!
