Past Lives at Real Art Ways

Past Lives

“…A lyrical slow burn of a film that expertly holds back wellsprings of emotion, until it unleashes a deluge.” – Washington Post

“An achingly beautiful, emotionally subtle and understatedly powerful film.” – FilmWeek (KPCC – NPR Los Angeles)

“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 

“It’s a movie that understands how yearning lives in your body even when you think you’ve set it aside.” – Financial Times 


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.

CT Summer at the Museum

Real Art Ways was recently awarded a grant from Connecticut Humanities to support our participation in the CT Summer at the Museum initiative!

The program invites Connecticut children ages 18 and under plus one accompanying Connecticut resident adult to visit participating museums free of charge from July 1 through September 4, 2023. Funding for the initiative is provided by the CT General Assembly, with the support of Connecticut Humanities and the Department of Economic and Community Development, Office of the Arts, which also receives support from the federal ARPA.
