Her family living under the heavy burden of poverty, 10 year old Fanny Price is sent to live with her more affluent uncle and aunt, Sir Thomas and Lady Bertram of Mansfield Park.

Quiet, staid, and virtuous Fanny witnesses the stirrings of passion when worldly siblings Henry and Mary Crawford move in next door. Henry toys with the affections of Fanny's cousins Maria and Julia, but then his attentions unexpectedly turn towards Fanny... Written by L. Hamre

14 August 2003 | by (States) – See all my reviews

It's true that this version is a bit long and should only be attempted by real aficionados of Austen's work. I prefer it to the 1999 version, but someone looking to be entertained for an afternoon ought to look elsewhere. I didn't mind the actress who played Fanny as much as everybody else seems to. I won't praise her acting, but found it not much worse than anyone else's. She looked the part so much more than Frances O'Connor and played it with the necessary timidity that the other actress completely ignored. Edmund, I thought, looked all wrong for the part. I suppose this is a debatable point, but I felt his features were too old and his expressions too severe. Edmund was meant to be serious but warm. It is a subtlety that I felt, unfortunately, neither he nor the 1999 actor got right. The worst choice was Henry Crawford. His portrayal was so off and confusing that I found it hard to focus on the rest of the film. The actor played Crawford so flamboyantly that it is hard to imagine he made so many girls fall in love with him. Those are all of my real complaints; otherwise I found it an enjoyable, faithful adaptation of a wonderful book.
