Rita is a brash young hairdresser with a free spirit. Frank is a disillusioned English professor who hides behind booze and books. Eager to improve her lot in life, Rita enrolls in classes at the local university, but when these two very different people come together, sparks fly. In this Olivier Award-winning comedy, the relationship between teacher and student blossoms as Rita discovers a passion, and Frank finds a new lease on his life.
