It's turn of the (19th) century Eastern Europe and we find Yentl, a bright, independent young Jewish girl, who won't take no for an answer. She is determined to pursue her
studies--reserved only for the boys. Masquerading as a young man, she does just that--with a determination someone only of Barbra Streisand's nature could do! In “Yentl,” Streisand produced, directed, and co-wrote this amazing story and outstanding film. While the movie is “a film with music,” it is also a film with love. It is a film
remarkable in its undertaking and even more so in its presentation. It provides, too, much depth into the culture it examines, the characters it portrays, and the events that fall into place.
