Yentl
Starring Babs in an un-diva-like, but mesmerizing role
Directed by and starring Barbra Streisand, also with Amy Irving, Mandy Patinkin
Runtime: 132 minutes
Genre: Romantic musical drama
Synopsis: A Jewish girl disguises herself as a boy to enter religious training.
“Like all great fables, it grows out of a particular time and place, but it takes its strength from universal sorts of feelings. At one time or another, almost everyone has wanted to do something and been told they couldn’t, and almost everyone has loved the wrong person for the right reason. That’s the emotional ground that “Yentl” covers, and it always has its heart in the right place.” – Roger Ebert

Runtime: 130 minutes
Genre: Musical drama
Synopsis: A trio of black female soul singers cross over to the pop charts in the early 1960s, facing their own personal struggles along the way.
