Y for Yentl (A to Z Challenge)


I love Barbra Streisand and I love Yentl. Yentl is a Jewish girl starved for education. To accomplish her goal she dresses in man's clothes and goes to university.

Yentl story is based on on short story by Napolin and Isaac Bashevis Singe "Yentl the Yeshiva Boy" but Barbara rewrote it beautifully. (In the original Yentl stays as a man after graduation)

So long my friends,
Evalina

  2. I agree with Jo - this has been a wonderful meander through the alphabet meeting with remarkable people.

  3. I've never seen the film, but my mum loves it. The basis of the story is so sad though - that women weren't allowed to be educated.

    I haven't seen this movie yet. I added to my DVD list on Netflix. Sadly, it isn't in instant view.

  7. Yes another great movie choice, Evalina and we should reflect on what some of us probably take for granted in this day and age. I have put up my last post for this year's challenge and will be back to read yours :) Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace
