Elisa was very poor, so she didnt have the money to pay for the lessons. Then Higgins made a bet with Pickering, another phonetics teacher, that he could pass Elisa of as a duchess. Then after two months they had to put her on proof. She did great.
But they didnt give her any credit for her work, only for Higgins work. So she went out of Higgins house. But Higgins missed her. Later Elisa returned and they stayed together.
I think the actors are very good. And Audrey Hepburn as Elisa and Rex Harrison as Higgins were perfect. Stanley Holloway as Pickering was very good too. I learnt that you neednt speak perfectly to be a better person.
I would recommend this film to people who like musical, because theres too much singing in the film.
