Yentl

Director
Barbra Streisand
Country
USA
Year
1983
Duration
132 min

Yentl is classic Streisand – besides marking her directorial debut, she produced, starred in and co-wrote the film (with Jack Rosenthal). Adapted from Isaac Bashevis Singer’s short story and subsequent Broadway play, the plot concerns an Eastern European girl in 1904 who flouts tradition by discussing Jewish law and disguises herself as a man in order to study the Talmud, but falls in love with her study partner (Mandy Patinkin on great form).

The twist is that Streisand’s Yentl is a musical, with the lady herself belting out a dozen memorable numbers including ‘Papa, Can You Hear Me?’.
