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 windowpane check gown worn by Billie Piper (Fanny Price) to cut lavender is the same gown worn by Rosamund Stephen (Henrietta Musgrove) in Persuasion (2007), Honeysuckle Weeks (Alice Cottisloe) in Victoria Wood: With All the Trimmings (2000), Victoria Hopkins in The Regency House Party (2004), and Emma Thompson (Elinor Dashwood) in Sense and Sensibility (1995). The same costume is also worn in Byron (2003) by an extra at the London party where Byron meets Annabella Milbanke. See more »

If you have any sense for accuracy- DON'T WATCH!!!!!
20 July 2012 | by irishbelle98See all my reviews

As a devoted Austen fan, I find this film highly offensive. I have read many of Jane Austen's novels, Mansfield Park being one of them. I enjoyed the depth and character development. However, these elements were annihilated in this "adaptation"- if it even deserves that title. They allow no time to get to know Fanny, and her struggles and feelings. Edmund is not given HALF his moral credit, and his feelings for Miss Crawford are prematurely introduced. On another note, Lady Bertram is far too shrewd. There is never a relationship between her and Fanny, as is portrayed in the book.

Overall, I was greatly disappointed. I realize that not every detail can be incorporated, but I expect key plot points and character aspects to be involved. Do not waste your time on this film, unless you enjoy low quality period dramas.

I hope in the future, that a more worthy production of Mansfield may be created for the enjoyment of TRUE Janeites.
