    Educating Rita
    Director: Lewis Gilbert
    Screenwriter: Willy Russell
    Starring: Michael Caine, Julie Walters, Maureen Lipman, Michael Williams
    Release details: Columbia Pictures, UK 1983, 106mins
    Full details: IMDb
    Genre: Comedy-drama
    Rating: 10 out of 10 Educating Rita traces the relationship between Liverpudlian hairdresser Rita (Walters) and Dr Frank Bryant (Caine), an alcoholic university professor, both of whom have reached an impasse in their lives and need a new direction. Rita feels trapped by both her marriage and her life, which seems mapped out by her friends and family into motherhood and settling for what she's got. Wanting to broaden her horizons, she joins the Open University to study English Literature and is assigned to Dr Frank Bryant. Bryant, whose career is stalled and relationship has disintegrated, is initially disinterested and condescending, but is soon brought out of his self-pitying daze by Rita's candour and enthusiasm. In the best acting performance of his not inconsiderable career, Caine makes Frank - alcoholic, unprofessional, rude, self-destructive, self-loathing - sympathetic rather than just pathetic. Caine won Best Actor at the BAFTAs and the Golden Globes for hs performance and, although nominated, lost out at the Oscars to Robert Duvall. Now, I think Duvall is one of the greatest actors alive and have nothing but respect for him but he was the only American nominated alongside four Brits (Caine, Tom Courtney, Albert Finney and Tom Conti). And, the other famous occasion when the Academy picked an American from a field of foreigners (3 Brits and an Australian) was 1993, when Marisa Tomei won Best Supporting Actress for

    Rita Hayworth
    A tribute from a fan. She was born Margarita Carmen Cansino on October 17, 1918, and at the age of three was learning to dance as a member of The Dancing Cansinos. In 1935, she shortened her name to Rita Cansino and appeared as (what else) a dancer in Dante's Inferno . By 1937, she had taken her mother's maiden name, Haworth, and was appearing regularly in supporting roles. Her first husband promoted her tirelessly until breaks came in prominent roles in Only Angels Have Wings (1939) and Blood and Sand (1941); and the movies' Love Goddess was born. Who can forget her steamy portrayal of Gilda (1946), or her unique and moving Miss Sadie Thompson Rita died on May 14, 1987 after a long struggle with Alzheimer's Disease. Her daughter, Princess Yasmin Aga Khan , continues as a prominent leader in the fight against Alzheimer's. 1996 Rita Hayworth Gala
