July 21, 2005
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.

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

It's alluring to see a costume drama that takes us inside the subtlest, most wrenching realities of money.

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

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

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 Park is quick and funny, and a refreshing break from period-film stuffiness.
January 1, 2000
Though it's never dull, this Mansfield Park has too much of its own agenda and too little of Austen's to completely succeed.

Too often steps out of its era to adopt a knowing, politically correct, late-20th-century attitude to the society portrayed.
January 1, 2000
A fine addition to the filmed Austen canon.
