An endearing working class woman chooses university enrollment over making babies, much to her husband’s chagrin. Rita’s sheer determination and simple wisdom charm her academically jaded tutor. Educating Rita won Britain’s prestigious Olivier Award for Best Comedy and demonstrates with warmth and wit how perseverance pays and how even the best teachers have a thing or two to learn.
