Summary
Rita, a young working-class woman, desperately wants an education. She enrolls in literature tutorials at a British University to escape from her dreary life as a hairdresser as well as a confining existence at home. Her professor is Frank Bryant, a disillusioned English professor who encourages his students to forsake dead poetry and enjoy life. As Rita is transformed into a free spirit, Frank is forced to confront his own life
