Storyline

At 10, Fanny Price, a poor relation, goes to live at Mansfield Park, the estate of her aunt's husband, Sir Thomas. Clever, studious, and a writer with an ironic imagination and fine moral compass, she becomes especially close to Edmund, Thomas's younger son. Fanny is soon possessed of beauty as well as a keen mind and comes to the attention of a neighbor, Henry Crawford. Thomas promotes this match, but to his displeasure, Fanny has a mind of her own, asking Henry to prove himself worthy. As Edmund courts Henry's sister and as light shines on the link between Thomas's fortunes and New World slavery, Fanny must assess Henry's character and assert her heart as well as her wit.

What the heck....
31 May 2007 | by gjp-8See all my reviews

I was truly disgusted! Why couldn't Ms Rozema fool around with another novel (something rubbishy and vulgar). Jane Austen would have turned in her grave. There are so many flaws in this version (if you can call it a version) that I can't name every single one. But why change the plot, the characters and their personalities, loose some key ones and still have the guts to call it after the novel? The outrageous sex scene and nonsense about slavery was totally unnecessary and out of place. Mansfield Park isn't one of Austen's most admired novels, but it is certainly not vulgar, nor did she use it as a way to show political convictions. If you really want to enjoy some good adaptations of Austen's novels, I recommend Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility and even Emma with its light plot and comical characters. Don't waste your time with this crap!
