Mansfield Park Reviews

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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.
