Overview

Barbra Streisand's award-winning adaptation of Pat Conroy's The Prince of Tides comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. A closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround, while Spanish, French, and Portuguese soundtracks have been recorded in Dolby Digital Stereo. English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Chinese, Korean, and Thai subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include talent files, production notes, and theatrical trailers. Like the film itself, this DVD is solid, but less than spectacular.

Editorial Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
By directing one good film, you prove that you had a movie inside of you. By directing two, you prove you are a real director, and that is what Barbra Streisand proves with The Prince of Tides, an assured and very serious love story that allows neither humor nor romance to get in the way of its deeper and darker subject.

This movie was amazing. You know a movie is really great when you watch it, cry your eyes out, and want to watch it again after it is finished. This film is a real tear-jerker (I would have a box of tissues on stand-by). This movie also shows once again how great an actress, director, and producer Barbra Streisand is. This movie deserves the title CLASSIC!

This movie IS a classic, should have won 'Best Movie' when it was nominated, and Barbra should have BEEN nominated and won for 'Best Director'....a moving, funny, excellent film about coming to grips with one's life. Very poignant. Barbra is extraordinary! For the viewer's info, she doesn't sing, but if you buy the CD the songs she recorded, but didn't include in the movie, are on it.

The only movie I can actually watch over and over again. There are layers upon layers in the story, keeping you enthralled till the end. And since it is a movie, based on a book, the beauty of some scenes is breath taking. If I had my vote: best picture, best actor, best director, best script etc.
