Barbra Streisand rose to superstardom as a vocalist but went on to prove herself as a versatile actor and outstanding director. We will look at Streisand’s cinematic work, focusing on how she and her Jewish background influenced the films in which she appeared, even when she took no credit for her participation as cowriter.
Movies to be studied* include The Way We Were (1973), A Star Is Born (1976), Yentl (1983), The Prince of Tides (1991) and The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996).
*Movies will be screened in segments with breaks - students are recommended to watch the full film on their own.
