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.

David N. Butterworth

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.

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...

Susan Granger

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 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.

Ms. Rozema has made a film whose satiric bite is sharper than that of the usual high-toned romantic costume drama.

Mansfield Park is quick and funny, and a refreshing break from period-film stuffiness.

Ernest Hardy
Top Critic IconTop Critic

Full of sparkling dialogue, witty asides, and top-drawer performances, Mansfield Park is a social satire wrapped inside a romantic comedy.

Boxoffice Magazine

Just enough sardonic wordplay pokes through to keep the Jane Austen in this Jane Austen.

It's smart, heady stuff that only fails at times because it's perhaps too ambitious for its own good...
