The Prince of Tides 1991
"Human pain does not let go of its grip at any one point in time," Robert Veninga writes in Gift of Hope: How We Survive Our Tragedies. "Rather it works its way out of our consciousness over time." The grip of pain and the liberation that comes when it is released is the theme of The Prince of Tides, directed and produced by and starring Barbra Streisand.

The Prince of Tides is all about family: the ties that bind, through thick and thin, good and bad, love and hate. All his life, Tom Wingo (Nick Nolte) has been a good "Southern boy," putting on a good show of jokes and banter rather than showing pain... and in the process, pushing away the people who matter most in his life. But when his beloved sister Savannah is hospitalized after a suicide attempt, Tom receives a call for help from her psychiatrist, Susan (Barbra Streisand). Helping Savannah means more than making the trip north to New York to visit her in the hospital; Tom must help Susan understand Savannah's troubled past in order to resolve the issues that prompted her suicide attempt. But Savannah's past is also Tom's past, and during the course of his sessions with Susan, Tom must confront and share his most painful, hidden memories.

For her acclaimed second feature as a director, Barbra Streisand crafted a sumptuous, emotionally wrenching adaptation of Pat Conroy’s best-selling novel.
