    Synopsis


    Yentl
    Barbra Streisand's directorial debut, Yentl, is a musical adaptation of a story by the beloved Jewish writer Isaac Bashevis Singer. Yentl (Streisand) is a young woman who wants nothing more than to study religious scripture. She is denied that possibility because she is a woman. She moves, passes herself off as a male named Anshel, and then begins her studies. She becomes close to fellow student Avigdor (Mandy Patinkin), eventually falling in love with him, although she can not reveal her true self as she would then be expelled. Avigdor is in love with Hadass (Amy Irving), but religious law forbids him from marrying her. Avigdor attempts to fix Anshel up with Hadass, leading to Hadass falling in love with Anshel. Yentl received four Academy Award nominations, including two Best Song nods. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

      Finally, the DVD that many Barbra Streisand's fans are longing for years is now available. A storytelling in its classic form. The music is absolutely mesmerizing and heartfelt. I'm looking forward to its Blu-ray disc format.

      The connection that Yentl has with her father is great to see. She is a very strong women which is a big reason why i like it so much. the way it was filmed was also done very well. I enjoyed the music and songs so much that I bought the sound track.

      Never got to watch DVD. Disc was defective. Reordered and second disc was defective. Couldn't watch anything. The manufacturer gave bad discs.
