"Educating Rita" (1983) is a British comic drama based on the play of the same name. The title character is a working-class woman seeking to improve herself by studying literature. Her tutor is at first dubious about her ability because of her lack of education, but he gradually warms to her and is impressed by her enthusiasm. Rita, for her part, discovers that educated people aren't necessarily better or happier than working-class people. Her teacher, for instance, is an alcoholic.
