A beautiful directorial debut

Yentl gives a good picture of Jewish life in the late 19th and early 20th Century. The rigid gender roles become the fodder of a gender-disguise comedy, but the writers don't present us the predictable romantic comedy ending. The musical numbers help us understand the inner turmoil of the Yentl character, while the comic scenes have all the required tension to keep the viewer engaged. A great story for adults and children old enough to understand romantic attraction.

Yentl is a good female roll model!

I saw Yentl as a child in the theatre. There are mature themes which may bore a child, but they aren't really inapropriate. Yentl was on tv about 6 months ago and my 5 year old daughter ended up watching a bit of it with me....and SHE LOVED it. So much that she asked me to buy it. She's now seen it many times and is never bored. I think that Yentl is a really good female roll model which I truly appreciate. I love this movie and so does my daughter!
