Barbra Streisand’s The Prince Of Tides is getting a new Blu-ray release in March courtesy of The Criterion Collection and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Directed by Streisand and based on Pat Conroy’s best-selling novel, the film co-stars Nick Nolte and was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including best picture and best actor.
Summoned to New York after his sister attempts suicide, Tom Wingo (Cape Fear’s 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.
