Format: DVD
I love this movie ... having first seen it in a movie theatre. On the surface it is a comedy with some tragedy for good measure and reality, the script is poignant and smart. The gem of this film is that underneath a first glance it is the journey of a Heroic arc, a transformation of a life, grant it one woman's journey but it is still a map. The chemistry and acting of all the characters is as real as a film can be ... I don't know how many times I've seen this film but I'm thrilled it's finally available in DVD so that anytime I need inspiration I can watch it over and over.

DVD was in mint condition when I received. Came exactly as expected. The movie is well done and is comedic at times. Good for a laugh.

Educating Rita is a kick, with a wonderful performance from Julie Walters at its heart. Michael Caine, too, is perfectly cast as a poet long since turned to the bottle. Watching those two play off of one another is good fun; they breathe life into the pat writing. When the story wanders out to follow either character out in the world, the minor characters are much less well rounded. (She has a loutish cockney husband and family, he has intellectual friends who bring wine to parties. Surprised?)
If you understand the basic outline of the plot here -- cockney young woman trying to raise herself in charmingly spirited fashion, professor in his cups who finds the upstart refreshing -- you aren't going to be surprised by where the story goes. Educating Rita does handle all the likely turns with grace, though, and that lets you concentrate on appreciating the acting. The movie's very watchable and has a good heart.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Kona TOP 100 REVIEWER on June 24 2010
Format: DVD
Rita White (Julie Walters) is a spunky, 26-year old working class woman who wants to improve her lot. She enrolls in a special Open University class and meets with her tutor, Frank (Michael Caine) once a week to study great literature. Frank, who spends his days in an alcoholic haze, is at first intrigued and later enthralled with the outspoken Rita.

This is a wonderful showcase for the talented Julie Walters, who carries the film on her young and petite shoulders. She is dazzling and thoroughly likeable and every word spoken in her thick Liverpool accent rings honest and true. Caine lets her shine by downplaying Frank, who is hopelessly morose and more than a bit lazy. Both were rightly nominated for best acting Oscars.

The inevitable transformation/ improvement of both characters is sweet and uplifting without being overly-sentimental. Walters, best known these days as the matronly Mrs. Weasley, is quite young and attractive and lights up the screen with her charisma. Recommended.

Educating Rita was introduced to me when practice teaching in a grade 12 Religion class. It was used to illustrate the necessity of exploring oneself in order to find true happiness. This is exactly what happened in the story. The shipping was quick. It came 2 days after I ordered it. I would recommend consulting amazon for purchasing Dvds and Cds to anyone looking for something hard to find in stores or even just to compare pricing.

At last this wonderful film comes out on DVD. I have waited so long for this moment. This is a film that looks good, sounds good and has too many memorable moments to mention. From the first time Rita appears on the screen until the very last scene, it is a film to be savoured like a good red wine.

Julie Walters and Michael Caine are brilliant in this timeless comedy. The plot avoids the all too easy romantic angle to show the empowering aspect of education in a woman's life. Referring to her future, Rita emphasizes her freedom from anyone else's ability to rule her life, whether husband or teacher, emphasizing, "I'll choose." I wish this was on DVD. The soundtrack by Tangerine Dream is the only thing that really dates it.
Because of this film, I'll never view Mrs. Weasley in Harry Potter the same again. Julie Walters is one of the great masters of character development.
