Nominated for seven Academy Awards® including Best Picture and Best Actor, The Prince of Tides was directed by and stars Barbra Streisand as Susan Lowenstein, a New York psychiatrist who tries to help a suicidal writer by reconstructing her family history with the help of her twin brother, unemployed Southern football coach Tom Wingo (Nick Nolte). Wounded by the forces that have destroyed his sister's will to live, Tom begins a painful journey delving into long-denied memories, grasping for what may be his own salvation as well as his sister's. At the same time, Tom gives Dr. Lowenstein the courage to address her relationship with her abusive husband. These two people from dramatically different worlds come face to face with their own pain, make startling discoveries about themselves and each other . . . and fall in love in the process.
