For her acclaimed second feature as a director, Barbra Streisand (Yentl) crafted a sumptuous, emotionally wrenching adaptation of Pat Conroy's bestselling novel—which she also produced and starred in.
Summoned to New York after his sister attempts suicide, Tom Wingo (Cape Fear’s Nick Nolte) must serve as her memory, reckoning with the traumas of their southern childhood so that her psychiatrist, Dr. Susan Lowenstein (Streisand), can help her recover. But Tom’s sessions with Lowenstein will plunge him into the depths of his own long repressed pain—and reawaken the possibility of love within him.
Nominated for seven Academy Awards, including best picture and best actor for Nolte’s soulful performance, The Prince of Tidesis a life-affirming tale of healing and renewal from a triple-threat filmmaker with a keen and humane insight into her characters’ sorrows, joys, and yearnings.
