Yentl ★★★

Barbra Streisand pretends to be a man so she can go to Bible school. Like most movie characters who cross-dress, she makes no effort whatsoever to talk, sound, or act like a man, relying on the short hair and men's clothing to do all the heavy lifting. (To be fair, it works.) Beautifully filmed, especially Mandy Patinkin. Would probably be better as a comedy.
