It's hard to imagine a more delightful time spent at the movies this holiday season than with this adaptation of Austen's Mansfield Park.

Rozema's handling of the entangled amours and social gamesmanship at Mansfield Park is delightful...It's impure Austen, but potent moviemaking.

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.

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.
February 14, 2001
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.

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.
January 1, 2000
This Mansfield Park becomes a kind of romanticized gloss -- an imaginative grad-student thesis that melds author and character.
January 1, 2000
Overall, Rozema succeeds in balancing the plot's lighter elements and heavier undercurrents without compromising either.
January 1, 2000
An eminently enjoyable viewing experience.

O'Connor makes a fetching film debut as the patient yet resolute heroine.
