Yentl Director's Extended Edition (DVD)
ITEM#: 11879360Barbra Streisand cowrote, produced, and directed as well as starred in this popular motion picture, based on a short story by Isaac Bashevis Singer. The story follows the adventures of Yentl, a courageous young woman growing up in Eastern Europe at the turn of the 20th century. Inspired by her father's teaching to become a Talmudic scholar--despite the religious restrictions against her doing so--she manages to make her dreams come true by disguising herself as a boy and entering an orthodox Jewish school. But her masquerade causes big problems when she falls in love with her fellow scholar Avigdor (Mandy Patinkin)...and his fiancee (Amy Irving, in an Oscar-nominated performance) falls in love with her. In an interesting twist on the musical genre, Streisand performs each song as an interior soliloquy, as if she were speaking to herself. This lends the film an air of analysis and introspection, two notions not commonly found in a musical but which would later be employed to great effect in movies such as VELVET GOLDMINE. Streisand made her debut as a feature-film director with YENTL, which was nominated for five Academy Awards.

This is an amazing movie, right up there with Fiddler on the Roof. It is a testimony to choices, knowledge, equality and the basic human right of the Pursuit of Happiness. And it does all that without vulgar language. There are some adult topics but they are well portrayed and easily explained to children of the appropriate age.I love this movie, Thanks Overstock.com I have been looking for this movie on DVD for a long time.Read More
