Boozy and burned-out university professor Dr. Frank Bryant needs to earn some extra cash to support his alcohol habit, so he agrees to tutor Rita, a brash, free-spirited hairdresser who desperately wants to better herself. The result is British playwright Willy Russell's delightful Pygmalion-style comedy Educating Rita, in which Frank ends up playing Henry Higgins to Rita's modern-day Eliza Doolittle. Each half of this unlikely pair has a profound impact on the other, opening up new possibilities for both of their lives. Learn More

This is a study of three long term friends that put their friendship on review because of differences of opinion on an expensive painting one purchases... It is all about what they based their friendships on... Wonderful energy... Good timing, worth seeing...
One of Marc's best friends, Serge, has just bought a very expensive painting. It's about five feet by four, all white with white diagonal lines. To Marc, the painting is a joke, but Serge insists Marc doesn't have the proper standard to judge the work. Another friend, Ivan, allows himself to be pulled into this disagreement. Eager to please, Ivan tells Serge he likes the painting. Lines are drawn and these old friends square off over the canvas, using it as an excuse to relentlessly batter one another over various failures. As their arguments become more personal, they border on destroying their friendships. At the breaking point, Serge hands Marc a felt tip pen and dares him: "Go on." This is where the friendship is finally tested, and the aftermath of action, and its reaction, affirms the power of those bonds.
