Barbra Streisand and Nick Nolte star in the stunning screen adaptation of Pat Conroy’s best-selling novel, THE PRINCE OF TIDES. Nolte is Tom Wingo, a disillusioned Southern coach who must reveal his tortured childhood in order to help his suicidal sister. Streisand is Susan Lowenstein, the determined psychiatrist who battles Tom’s resentment and rage in search of the truth. Their antagonism gradually gives way to love, as Tom and Susan find the secret that unlocks his sister’s torment and the courage to change their own lives. Critically acclaimed as the best movie of the year, THE PRINCE OF TIDES was hailed by Jeffrey Lyons as a blockbuster, must-see, can’t-miss movie. Streisand also won rave reviews as director, assembling a superlative supporting cast that includes Blythe Danner, Kate Nelligan, Jeroen Krabb.

“The Prince of Tides marks Ms. Streisand’s triumphantly good job of locating that story’s salient elements and making them come alive on the screen.” — Janet Maslin, New York Times
“An assured and very serious love story that allows neither humor nor romance to get in the way of its deeper and darker subject.” — Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
