Wonderful book adaptation with strong female character.

Mansfield Park works because it not only comes from the novel...but also from Austen's letters and journals.

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.

While Mansfield Park doesn't boast the high calibre Hollywood star wattage and gloss of Sense and Sensibility, it offers a more thought-provoking viewpoint.

...busy nothings add up to motion picture somethings in one of the year's most charming films.

Despite such occasional flaws...Mansfield Park is a welcome treat for Austen addicts.

An uneven but ultimately stirring adaptation from Canadian director Patricia Rozema.

Rozema's thoughtful pacing and deliberately modern spin on the tale keep the rot from setting in.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

This is merely another attempt at making a high-class art film that can't come close to the spirit of the literary book it is based on.

While die-hard fans of Austen's works might not like the contemporary spin that Rozema has put on this latest adaption, most every other fan of period costume dramas will probably find it to their liking.

This is perhaps not Jane Austen's Mansfield Park, but Jane Austen would have probably recognized most of it and would have been amused by the rest.

rec.arts.movies.reviews

In this provocative, revisionist adaptation of Jane Austen's third novel, Canadian writer-director Patricia Rozema gives her 19th century heroine, Fanny Price, much of Austen's own confidant, creative personality.

This incarnation of Fanny may not have been what Austen had in mind, but she surely would have approved, for the injection of attitude and smarts makes Mansfield Park a much more wicked and irresistible social satire...

With its gorgeous cinematography...lovely muted score, and sure-footed performances, especially by Frances O'Connor, Patricia Rozema's Mansfield Park sets a new standard for adaptations of Jane Austen's work.

One Guy's Opinion

Enough of Austen's witty depiction of British society is preserved to keep the viewer pleasantly occupied.

Rozema is good with actors, and in her hands O'Connor gives us a Fanny who is self-assured without being a feminist caricature.

Rozema's dry wit, effervescent dialogue and contemporary reinterpretations are often a refreshing change from the swoony, soft-peddling style of other Austen adaptations.

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

Mansfield Park is a perfectly good adaptation, but it's trite.
