Walters is Rita, a working-class woman seeking the path to self-discovery. Bored with her life as a hairdresser, and under pressure from her husband to start a family, she enrolls in literature tutorials at a British university determined to better herself. Caine is FrankBryant, the disillusioned English professor who is assigned to teach her.

Earning a third Oscar(r) nomination for its screenplay by William Russell.
