Rated 2 out of 5 by from BBC's Remake I wanted to love this I really did. I had been searching for it for a while and finally gave in and ordered it because my Jane Austen group was covering film adaptations. Sadly it was dry, witless and poorly cast. It just did not hold a candle to the O'Conner version of 2000. There was only one good thing about this version and that was the Uncle. This time they made the Uncle a slight more caring character, therefore drawing their line of difference with the previous version.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad but not great Of all the Austen novels, I think Mansfield Park is the hardest to "sell" to modern audiences. Fanny is a hard character to bring to the screen and there really isn't much action in the novel. It is a story of morality and the romance is secondary. However, this movie also lacks because it condensed the novel so much. Mrs. Norris, a critical character in the novel, is in the background but if you haven't read the novel, you don't know who she is or why she is even around. (How will you ever know why Mr. Filch's cat is named after her? ;-) That being said, this version is much better than the 1999 version with Frances O'Connor but not as accurate as the 1983 version with Sylvestra Le Touzel.
