“Like all great fables, it grows out of a particular time and place, but it takes its strength from universal sorts of feelings…charming and moving and surprisingly interesting.”
—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
“Yentl reveals itself to those willing to look as a richly detailed, humorous, and poignant love letter to a world and culture gone by…succeeds as both an old-fashioned tribute to tradition and a contemporary exploration of an independent woman’s battle against a rigidly patriarchal system—not coincidentally echoing Streisand’s own film career.”
—Luisa F. Ribeiro, Baltimore City Paper
Starring, directed, and co-written (with Jack Rosenthal) by the legendary Barbra Streisand, Yentl (1983) is a romantic musical drama adapted from Isaac Bashevis Singer’s story about a Jewish girl (Streisand) who, after her beloved scholar-father’s death, disguises herself as a young man so she can continue her education in Talmudic Law. Her deception involves her in a triangle with an attractive fellow student (Mandy Patinkin) and his subservient fiancée (Amy Irving). Featuring an Oscar®-winning score by Michel Legrand, with lyrics by Marilyn and Alan Bergman.
