Mansfield Park Reviews

Eric D. Snider

Mansfield Park is not boring, exactly...Unfortunately, the middle, while remaining upbeat, never amounts to anything substantial.

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.

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

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

Cornell & Petricelli

Stifled and tedious adaptation of an Austen classic strips the heroine of her usual power of perception and tongue.

Rozema's previous films...contain an almost magical-realism, with their vivid colors and strong focus on female sexuality. She attempts to work a similar magic here, but Mansfield Park's narrative and erotic currents are much more prosaic.

Rozema's movie ... in trying so hard to entertain, ends up sabotaging itself.

Even if you have never read Austen, you will sense that something is wrong here long before a nude scene that would have made the author hide under a table.

Mansfield a confusing jumble of historical drama and modern social essay that only serves to cloud the whole field of Jane Austen studies.

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

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

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

Bodices may not be ripped, but they are certainly loosened in this very liberal adaptation of Jane Austen's novel.

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