Storyline

At age 10, Fanny Price is sent by her destitute mother to live with her aunt and uncle, Sir Thomas and Lady Bertram. As a child she was often made to feel that she was the poor relation but by the time she reaches 18, and in the absence of her uncle who leaves on a business trip for an extended period, she begins to enjoy herself. When Henry Crawford and his sister Mary become neighbors to the Bertrams, opportunities abound. Edmond Bertram falls in love with Mary but she wants to marry a man with money, not someone destined to life as a clergyman. Meanwhile, Fanny's love for her cousin Edmond prevents her from accepting Mr. Crawford's proposal of marriage. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The black patterned muslin gown worn by Billie Piper (Fanny Price) at Maria's wedding is the same gown Gemma Jones (Mrs. Dashwood) wears in Sense and Sensibility (1995) when Edward comes to Barton Cottage, and Janet Dale (Miss Briggs) wears at Park Lane in Vanity Fair (1998). The same costume is also worn in Byron (2003) by Pauline Moran (Mrs. Curtain) when Byron arrives for the wedding, and by an extra at the Meryton Assembly Ball in Pride & Prejudice (2005). See more »

Jane Austen for the intellectually-challenged
19 March 2007 | by (London UK) – See all my reviews

I watched 40 minutes and couldn't bear it any longer – the television went off and I returned to some light reading "Lobotomy for Beginners".

It was hard to say what aspect of this production was most displeasing

  • dialogue made up entirely of sound-bytes or the acting by numbers.


It was difficult to determine the period in which the drama was supposed to take place. There were throw-away references to Lord Nelson and slavery but Edmund, the cleric-to-be, played by Blake Ritson was the only actor who one could believe inhabited the early 19th century. The other bright-young things had make-up and costumes more appropriate to a 21st century fancy dress party - the bleached-blonde Fanny, Billie Piper being the least credible character.

UK commercial television obviously believes heaving bosoms, pouting lips and deep meaningful looks make a good story. Fortunately Jane Austen had other ideas.

If you want to find out the story of Mansfield Park, buy the 1983 mini-series DVD.
