Mansfield Park (1999)
I saw the movie before I read the book
I saw the movie before I read the book. I enjoyed the movie a lot, especially the parts where the main character looks at the screen and reads some of her journal or her writings. Then I read the book. I'm very surprised how different the stories are. There is very little mention of her writings, and the book emphasizes her brother, while the movie emphasizes her sister. I actually nearly stopped reading the book because of how much emphasis was on how badly her aunt treated her. Austen made the point to such a point that I nearly put the book down. And the lectures of the aunt and her uncle just seemed to go on and on and on. Just based on those changes, I actually think the movie is better. I would consider the written version to be one of the weakest of her books because of the repetition of how the aunt and uncle treated her.
