Directed By: Barbara Streisand
Starring: Barbara Streisand, Mandy Patinkin, Amy Irving

“Nothing mattered to me except getting this movie made.”Barbara Streisand

As much as musicals put women at the forefront, it’s rare to see one directed by a woman, but Barbra Streisand’s Yentl is a key exception. Directed, co-written and co-produced by its lead star, Yentl also earned Streisand the honour of becoming the first – and so far only – woman to receive a Golden Globe for directing.

Based on Leah Napolin and Isaac Bashevis Singer’s play of the same name Yentl sees Streisand portraying a young woman in Poland in 1904. Desperate to receive an education in Talmudic Law she decides to dress and live like a man and enters a religious school, falling for a fellow student (Mandy Patinkin) along the way.
