Rita, a hairdresser with a sharp wit, is married to Danny, and at 26 doesn't want a baby. She wants to discover herself - so she joins the Open University. Dr Frank Bryant is a disillusioned university professor of literature. His marriage has failed, his girlfriend is having an affair with his best friend and he can't get through the day without drowning a bottle or two of whiskey. He refers to himself as an appalling teacher of appalling students. What Frank needs is a challenge - and along comes Rita. In this hilarious and often moving drama, the story tells how two people find a new lease of life through each other.

A great film with an excellent cast - one of my personal favorites.

Yes, I must confess I have got to know it well over the years too. Dr.Bryant's professional relationship with the Bursar is particularly amusing......
