“Educating Rita” (1983) Julie Walters and Michael Caine; screenplay by Willy Russell
A 27-year-old hairdresser from Liverpool strives to sing “a better song” by studying literature through the Open University. Rita’s love of literature grows as her preconception of a happier educated class diminishes, partly, through her professor’s alcoholism.
