30th Anniversary! YENTL, 1983, Park Circus/MGM, 132 min. Adapted from Isaac Bashevis Singers short story/play, this engaging musical is set in a Jewish community in Poland in the early 20th century. After her fathers death, Yentl (Barbra Streisand) wants to continue her study of the Talmud but, according to tradition, that is strictly a mans work. So Yentl adopts a male alter ego and enrolls in a Jewish religious school - where she winds up in a romantic triangle with a fellow student (Mandy Patinkin) and his fiance (Amy Irving). Streisands directorial debut raises thoughtful questions about religious and gender identity while it entertains, and it earned her a Golden Globe. The score earned Oscars for Michel Legrand and lyricists Alan & Marilyn Bergman; among the memorable songs in the films hit soundtrack are Papa, Can You Hear Me? and The Way He Makes Me Feel. {35mm}
