YENTL (1983) 7TWO, 2PM, PG, DRAMA

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Bar­bra Streisand fans should get a kick out of see­ing her name fea­ture on the cred­its as star, di­rec­tor, pro­ducer and writer of this in­ter­est­ing but far too long story of a Jewish girl who dis­guises her­self as a boy to pur­sue re­li­gious train­ing. Mandy Patinkin ( Home­land) is the man the dressed up Babs falls for, which leads to all man­ner of con­fu­sion and sub­tle trans­gres­sions. Of course it wouldn’t be a Streisand film with­out a few bal­lads belted out for good mea­sure, but it’s a long walk in the desert (133 min­utes) for only a lit­tle wa­ter. ★★★
