A man suffering a midlife crisis becomes involved with his sister's psychiatrist while trying to piece together the secrets of his family's dark past.

"Nolte is both compelling and believable,,,  Leonard Maltin

Editor's Note
Barbra Streisand's adaptation of Pat Conroy's lyrical, passionate novel concerns romance as it emerges from the ashes of a traumatic childhood. Southerner Tom Wingo is going through a midlife crisis: He's got no job, a disintegrating marriage, and a drinking problem. But he gets a jolt of reality when he hears that his sister has attempted suicide. Tom instantly heads to New York to meet Susan Lowenstein, his sister's psychiatrist. As Tom provides Susan with information about his sibling and their dysfunctional family, the two become more intimate and soon begin an affair. As the romance blossoms, the repressed Tom and the guarded Susan find they are able to help each other with their respective problems. In particular, Tom is finally able to discuss a devastating incident from his youth. A tearjerker in the best sense of the term, THE PRINCE OF TIDES-- featuring outstanding performances from the Oscar-nominated Nick Nolte and director Streisand--offers a cathartic release and somewhat bittersweet ending that is a truly satisfying cinematic experience.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone
"...Kate Nelligan's fine, forceful performance is award caliber....Nolte also acts with uncommon feeling..." 01/09/1992 p.55

Sight and Sound
"...Effective, well-crafted...entertainment about the therapeutic power of love..." 03/01/1992 p.52-3

Entertainment Weekly
"...La Streisand's masterpiece of middlebrow kitsch..." --- Rating: B 01/27/1995 p.60

Chicago-Sun Times 8 of 10 assured and very serious love story that allows neither humor nor romance to get in the way of its deeper and darker subject...Streisand shows herself as a director who likes emotional stories--but doesn't simplify them, and pays attention to the human quirks and strangeness of her characters. - Roger Ebert

Washington Post 7 of 10
Director Barbra Streisand makes the movie powerful...A big-hearted performance by Nick Nolte puts The Prince of Tides over the top... his quest for salvation is a memorable experience. - Desson Howe
