I thought it was a delicious period romance although Billie Piper was all wrong.
A just okay version.
I thought it was definitely a better movie than "Ernest Saves Christmas", but I might be biased, since I'm a Billie Piper fan.
Definitely entertaining for anyone who enjoys costume romances, but absolutely not Jane Austen's Mansfield Park. In point of fact, some Janeites might find themselves actively disliking this as the Fanny Price is galaxies away from the Fanny Price we know and love. Personally, I enjoyed it once I accepted that this wouldn't be a truthful adaptation of the novel. Hayley Atwell is lovely & enchanting as Mary Crawford. Billie Piper is a likable Fanny and Blake Ritson a crushworthy Edmund.
They should have at least tried to make the main character look as if she belongs to the time period.
Sadly I didn't like this movie much - the story was not interesting enough and I just couldn't force myself to care for the characters...:(
What were they thinking? Fanny Price is one of Jane Austen's weakest (literally) heroines, but this Billie Piper's Fanny is sly, bold and sexy: totally contrary to Austen's intent, or to the context of the story.
So, I like Jane Austen and all, clearly, but this really just went flat with me. To be fair, I haven't read this book, so I don't know if it's the plot or the way that it was handled that made it just so meh, so perhaps I'm judging too harshly. Now for the even harsher stuff. I did not like Billie Piper in this, and I'm a fan of hers, sort of. She had no spark at all, she was just sort of dull and phoned in, even. The directing was bad, but at least the costumes were pretty.
Because the movie is only 1.5 hrs long, it did a good job of adaptation of Jane Austen's book. I liked it much better than the BBC version.
I loved this adaptation. I think Billie especially played an honest and sincere part, and Blake was brill. I love the story (maybe even a little more than pride and prejudice, or an equal amount if not) and thought the adaptation was lovely for a summers evening!
