About the Movie

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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: 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, Feb 3, 2012

Rotten: The Prince of Tides is a big, messy, go-for-the-throat soap opera, the sort of movie in which every third scene feels like one of those soul-spilling climaxes they use for clips on Oscar night. – Entertainment Weekly, Feb 3, 2012

Fresh: Streisand hyperbolizes everything, from James Newton Howard's whackingly obtrusive score to Nick Nolte's overripe narration. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Feb 3, 2012

Fresh: A deeply moving exploration of the tangled emotions of a dysfunctional Southern family, this lovingly crafted (though unevenly scripted) film of Pat Conroy's novel centers on Nick Nolte's performance of a lifetime. – Variety Staff, Variety, Feb 3, 2012

She should have won an Oscar for this!!!!

A fabulous movie!!! Definitely a must see!!!!


In her adaptation of Pat Conroy's beloved novel, Barbra Streisand is the epitome of screen glamour. Oh yeah, the rest of the movie is great, too. Especially Nick Nolte, Kate Nelligan, Blythe Danner and Stephen Goldblatt's lush cinematography. Lost Best Picture and Best Actor at the Oscars to "Silence Of The Lambs" which looks awfully thin compared to the richness of Streisand's vision. First American woman nominated for DGA award for Best Director.
