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.

March 4, 2002
A powerful portrait of a determined young woman's quest to remain true to the vastness of her spirit and soul.
January 9, 2002
An uneven but ultimately stirring adaptation from Canadian director Patricia Rozema.
April 28, 2001
Rozema's thoughtful pacing and deliberately modern spin on the tale keep the rot from setting in.

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.

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.
January 1, 2000
Full of sparkling dialogue, witty asides, and top-drawer performances, Mansfield Park is a social satire wrapped inside a romantic comedy.
January 1, 2000
Just enough sardonic wordplay pokes through to keep the Jane Austen in this Jane Austen.
January 1, 2000
Mansfield Park is not boring, exactly...Unfortunately, the middle, while remaining upbeat, never amounts to anything substantial.
Full Review | Original Score: C+

The cast is good, especially Davidtz.
January 1, 2000
It's alluring to see a costume drama that takes us inside the subtlest, most wrenching realities of money.
Full Review | Original Score: B+

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