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

The best ever
12 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is unquestionably the best ever adaptation of this book, faithful to the text and faithful to the feeling of the book. Sylvestra le Touzel is appropriately mouse-like and really embodies the real Fanny Price, (one of my favourite Austen heroines). She displays that transcendence of flesh that Austen uses as a metaphor for stability in an increasingly precarious situation, both for the estate and for the individuals associated with it. More recent adaptations have tried to make Fanny more capricious and human... but that is not what she is about. She represents the rise of the diligent lower classes to dominate the corrupt aristocracy, of merit over money, and morality over license. She and Edmund are the eventual winners, custodians of their inheritance, when all the favoured children have fallen into sin and temptation and proved themselves unworthy. Fanny Price is not so very different from Jane Bennett, Anne Elliot or Elinor Dashwood. I don't understand why so many people find her character "difficult"
