Critic Reviews for Mansfield Park

All Critics (79) | Top Critics (21)

While this version plays somewhat fast and loose with the original story, and even more so with the heroine's character, it is still much more Jane Austen than not.

Spins the most interesting modern re-interpretation of the Austen canon.

Chicago Tribune
Top Critic

Though it's never dull, this Mansfield Park has too much of its own agenda and too little of Austen's to completely succeed.

Despite its brazen politics, Mansfield Park never goes giddily amok as promised.

Top Critic

Too often steps out of its era to adopt a knowing, politically correct, late-20th-century attitude to the society portrayed.

Top Critic

This Mansfield Park becomes a kind of romanticized gloss -- an imaginative grad-student thesis that melds author and character.

Audience Reviews for Mansfield Park

Someone who knows Jane Austen's life and has also an experience of her books or the movies based on them ,can realise one thing for sure , that her novels are also based on her own life ,somehow . But this movie has more realistic elements of her season .Also has more action than other scripts and that makes it believable and attractive. Of course the most attractive is Edmund ( Jonny Lee Miller)lol.

This was a really great adaptation..and had a great cast. It was good to see Johnny Lee Miller again. I would recommend watching Sense & Sensability though..it is a bit better.
