12: Janie Haddad Tompkins Loves The Prince of Tides

You might think the 1991 Barbra Streisand-starring, Barbra Streisand-directed film The Prince of Tides is typical mom fare along the lines of The Bridges of Madison County. You are wrong. Guest Janie Haddad Tompkins gets Tony and Drew to realize why this film is deeper, darker and more profound than any misty watercolored-memories you might have in mind. Trigger warning: This film concerns a violent home invasion rape, so if that is something that is not your thing, don’t listen beyond the 44-minute mark.
