About the Movie
Based on a short story, "Yentl, the Yeshiva Boy," by Isaac Bashevis Singer. Yentl is the story of a young Eastern European woman, who, very early in our century (pre-WWI), disguises herself as a boy in order to pursue her passion for studying the Torah. Yentl (Streisand) has no trouble passing for a boy as she pursues her studies, but when she falls in love with a fellow student (Mandy Patinkin) she cannot, of course, express her feelings. Circumstances of Jewish law force the "boy" Yentl to marry a girl (Amy Irving), but the concealment must continue and Yentl must invent reasons for a long-delayed "consumation" of the marriage. Finally, she reveals her secret to her bride, who, after a time of shock, accepts Yentl for what she is.
barbra streisand is a godess.
this movie is amazing.
Been waiting for ages for this - been fortunate enough to see her perform "Papa can you hear me" live 3 times and she gave me goosebumps and made me cry every time!!! Brilliant movie, she deserved an Oscar for this, she really did!!!
Chillingly made and performed
This is one of my favorite movies. It is truly moving and polished. Barbara wrote, directed and starred in this movie. She did a wonderful job. It brings chills to my spine. Buy it.
