The Prince of Tides

I have no idea why I went to see this Best Picture nominee. It does not seem to be the kind of movie that I would want to see? I don't recall ever seeing another Barbra Streisand movie.

A race-car driver (Emilio Estevez) is snatched by time travel, a split-second before he would have died in a fatal crash, by Mick Jagger's 21st-century team of techies, who plan to sell his healthy body to an ailing, wealthy Anthony Hopkins, for a mind transfer. Estevez escapes and attempts to revive his relationship with his fiancée Renee Russo, now 15 years older, who's one of Hopkins's executives. Just imagine Anthony Hopkins brain in Emilio Estevez's body, and you'd think this was a horror movie! (At the old Cinema 57 in Boston)
