Yentl by Barbra Streisand. A 3-hour movie about a young woman whose parents have died. She has an unquenchable thirst for scripture as her dad used to teach her in secret because scripture was only to be read by men. She pursues the study of scripture in a Yeshiva after her father dies. Beautiful songs and scenery in this musical.
Yentl (1983) A Jewish girl disguises herself as a boy to enter religious training. Director: Barbra Streisand Writers: Jack Rosenthal (screenplay), Barbra Streisand (screenplay) Stars: Barbra Streisand, Amy Irving and Mandy Patinkin
