Set in Eastern Europe at the beginning of the last century, Barbra Streisand produces, directs and stars in this story of Yentl (Streisand), a young Jewish girl who wishes to study the Torah. This knowledge is forbidden to women under Jewish law, so she leaves home and disguises herself as a boy, in order to study at a yeshiva. She befriends a fellow student called Avigdor (Mandy Patinkin), who remains unaware that Yentl is a girl. Trouble arises when Avigdor breaks off his engagement to Hadass (Amy Irving) and asks Yentl to take his place. The film won an Academy Award for Best Song Score.
