Educating Rita


Bored with teaching undergraduates English literature, Frank Bryant (Michael Caine) morosely reflects through a whisky glass on his failed marriage and his attempt at becoming a poet. His world is turned upside down by the arrival of Rita (Julie Walters), a hairdresser who has decided to find herself by taking an Open University course. Excited by her freewheeling and acute observations, and - let's be honest - by Rita herself, Frank also feels a deep sadness as he watches her warm impulsive reactions being replaced by the sort of cold analytical approach he so much loathes in other students and colleagues.

Michael Williams, Maureen Lipman, Jeananne Crowley,
Malcolm Douglas, Godfrey Quigley, Dearbhla Molloy,
Patrick Daly, Kim Fortune, Philip Hurd-Wood.

Really love this movie, watch it every time its on TV even though I own the DVD. Julie Walters is really but brilliant actress. I would recommend this to all who hasn't seen it!!!!
