Barbra Streisand stars in and makes her directorial debut (for which she won a Golden Globe) in Yentl, the musical film about a young Jewish woman in early 20th-century Poland who disguises herself as a man so she can defy tradition and continue her study of the Talmud. While at a Jewish religious school, she winds up in a romantic triangle with a fellow student (Mandy Patinkin) and his fiancée (Amy Irving). This groundbreaking exploration of religious and gender identity was adapted from Isaac Bashevis Singer's classic Yiddish short story, Yentl the Yeshiva Boy, and features an Oscar-winning score, including the memorable songs "Papa, Can You Hear Me?" and "The Way He Makes Me Feel."

A very well-documented and moving portrait of a little-known giant of cinema history. The documentary included adulatory as well as unfavorable details about Bernard Natan. Rather than focusing exclusively on boring interviews with contemporary figures, the film used newsreel footage and actual films to complete the portrait, including rare scenes from the notorious pornographic films that Natan was accused of appearing in. Those interviews that were included were very touching, especially those with Natan's granddaughters.
