If only I'd been able to believe they were actually reading the books, then everything else would have fallen into place. But I didn't believe it.
Time has not been kind to "Educating Rita."
Inspired by Pygmalion and other works about mentor-pupil troubled/rewarding interaction, Lewis Gilbert's film is too theatrical, betraying its origins, but it's elevated by sparkling performances from Michael Caine and paricularly newcomer Julie Walters
Michael Caine is perfect.
...a thoughtful thematic treatise on cultivation and learning and a charming character study of two lost souls from different worlds finding a common need in one another.
Lewis Gilbert has taken a two-person play from stage to screen and cracked it open
Comedy with romantic touches that manages to be appealing and moving.
Probes the transformations that take place in the relationship between a rumpled professor and a hairdresser who wants him to tutor her in literature.
If you are either in college currently or are thinking about going soon, you should see this movie. It's a very thought provoking, realistic, unique movie about education and life. I highly recommend it.
An insightful storyline of education, a merging of classes, pretentious dreams and a meeting of minds.
Educating Rita is a (reasonably) modern day ?My Fair Lady? with character and ambition.
Both main roles interesting and played well by Michael Caine and Julie Walters.
One of the British 80?s greats.
Julie and Caine work very well together in this, she makes Rita's journey a terrific ride.
Brilliant and bitersweet British comedy-drama between a boozily burn-out professor, who has given up on life, and his newest student - a free-spirited hairdresser, who is determined to change hers.
