2.0 out of 5 stars Good film, but NOT Jane Austen's Mansfield Park, 26 Feb. 2006
This review is from: Mansfield Park [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
This was a pretty film, with pretty characters, a fairly fast moving storyline, and a happy ending (for most). Mansfield Park, however, it is NOT - I have just finished reading the book again and the film deviates materially from the original story in a number of places. Liberties are taken to spice it up a bit, and I think it's sad that the director felt the need to do so.
Watch, and enjoy - but don't expect to be familiar with a classic novel as a result. Read the book and enjoy it better.
