    More faithful to the book, but not nearly as good as the Patricia Rozema version.

  • Kelly KApril 22, 2008Reply

    This was a very good movie indeed. I loved the ending although it was a bit predictable. I know it was “back in the day” but I sure wished her love interest could have been someone other than her cousin who she grew up with.

  • Private UApril 23, 2008Reply

    Not really my cup of tea. It was rather cheesy in parts. Personally I didn’t like the fact that Fanny and Edmund were COUSINS… and they got married.

  • Karalene LApril 28, 2008Reply

    Not sure how I feel about this version yet.

  • Private UMay 1, 2008Reply

    Loved the book, not so much the movie.. Too many alterations of the plot, and great loss of details, especially regarding Fanny’s reflections and experiences.

  • hannah bMay 6, 2008Reply

    what a lovely film, billy piper aint bad at acting in this and blake ritson plays edward well. its a nice story about fanny (Piper) having to live with her aunt and uncle. lots goes on and she’s walked all over but soon ends up loving her cousin edward. its sweet and funny in parts, a nice jane austen story, its was made quite well. i’d love to read the book now to see more. worth seeing. a lovely film

  • Stephanie PMay 7, 2008Reply

    If you can get past the fact that she’s in love with her first cousin then its a cute love story. Not every well shot/edited either.

  • Linda AMay 10, 2008Reply

    Very Jane Austen ;o) Not my favourite Austen story though… Good acting performances, but not brilliant other that Ritson who is so well suited for his role as Edmond.

  • Cathryn DMay 12, 2008Reply

    Ok so it wasn’t horrible and Blake Ritson is absolutely a greek god!! But, when something is put on the big screen so beautifully with a perfectly good cast the first time, why remake it for the small screen?!

  • Private UMay 29, 2008Reply

    Really well done movie. The story line itself is not my favorite, a little flat. The setting and period of the movie is beautiful. It is hard to compare this to the well-known others like Sense and Sensibility an Pride and Prejudice. It is worth watching.

  • Kristine WJune 9, 2008Reply

    Movie was well done. I thought it stayed very faithful to the book but I feel like the story line was more alive in Jane Austen’s writing.

  • Private UJune 14, 2008Reply

    It is not bad, but compared to the older film, it is just nothing. And; Billie Piper is all wromg. She is not the Fanny Price type. The dresses are not right either.

    Not among my favourite Austen adaptations – somehow I found it hard to root for any of the characters. However, the music is lovely.

  • Katie DJune 18, 2008Reply

    I liked the actors who played Fanny & Edmund in the 1999 version much better, but overall this is a better adaptation & far less crude than the older film. The Crawfords are especially accurate here – so dubious!

    So romantic. I love Jane! 🙂

  • Sam NJune 22, 2008Reply

    Made me want to puke. I just couldn’t stand this movie haha, the sexual tension was there all the way through and everyone acted with such discretion! Cinematography was way too modern… it didn’t feel like something that was happening ages ago, it felt like something that was happening in the naughties.

    Interesting themes thoughout the movie though.

  • Anna FJune 23, 2008Reply

    I thought this was a bad adaptation. I feel sorry for anyone that hadn’t read the book, they would have probably been confused as people seem to fall in love with each other without reason. The relationships between characters were not well developed in the film.

    this is oficially my favorite movie EVER

  • Christine LJune 24, 2008Reply

    I didn’t particualry like this one better than the old adaptation – and doesn’t say much because I was impressed with the old one either.
    I didn’t really like any of the actors the picked.

  • Rachel CJune 26, 2008Reply

    I think if Billy Piper wasn’t the lead it may have been more ‘believable’. Everytime they showed her on screen I kept thinking ‘it’s Rose from Doctor Who!’

  • James CJune 29, 2008Reply

    Even having not read the book I could tell there was story missing. Still, I like Billie Piper and it told a good story.

  • Ted SJune 30, 2008Reply

    Not bad at all — despite my expectation that the ITV version would suffer by comparison with the 1983 BBC mini-series and the 1999 film.

    The casting here is eclectic, to say the least — Billie Piper fresh from her two seasons as Doctor Who’s companion, serial character actor/grimacer Douglas Hodge as Sir Thomas, even Bionic, Middlesexy Michelle Ryan as Maria.

    Yet somehow this all works, despite editing of the hedge-shear variety visited upon Austen’s novel. The casting of Blake Ritson as the tale’s moral center, Edmund, was a stroke of genius — he carries the story effortlessly.

    Similarly, Hayley Atwell and Joseph Beattie are terrific as the unspeakable Crawfords…

    Well worth renting!

  • Bradford GJuly 1, 2008Reply

    Pleasant enough but Billie Piper is jarringly miscast. Possibly the film is also too short as none but the primary characters and their inter-relationships are explained in any depth.

  • Amy PJuly 1, 2008Reply

    Well acted with gorgeous costuming & period setting !!! A beautiful film to look at that was, unfortunately, accompanied by a plain story & many characters whose motives remained unclear.

  • Jennifer BJuly 15, 2008Reply

    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.

  • Ariana KJuly 27, 2008Reply

    This was a sweet to-the-point film, & I genuinely enjoyed it. I can say, I have yet to read the book, but these characters seem more Jane Austen style then those of the Hollywood version with Frances O’Connor. I absolutely loved Blake Ritson! Gorgeous! That was reason enough to see it! (No, I’m kidding!) Totally recommend it!

  • Claire AJuly 27, 2008Reply

  • Melissa LJuly 28, 2008Reply

  • Mara JJuly 28, 2008Reply

    I had heard so many bad stories about this film. It was miscast, it had a lousy script and there was hardly any plot: I had to see for myself! Well, the critics were right. Especially the beginning was incredibly fast, too fast even, skipping so much. Then, Billie -who is a great actress- was in a different film to Mansfield Park I think, because she just didn’t fit in with the rest of the characters. For one: she was in a different costume (her hair? What were they thinking?) and for two: for a person who is supposed to be meek and plain, she didn’t look meek and plain.
    Of course, if you have never seen a different Mansfield Park or if you haven’t read the book, this film is really enjoyable and it definitely introduces you to the story. But in all other respects it was really a case of ‘leave well enough alone’.

  • Kimmie YJuly 29, 2008Reply

    So much better then the adaptation in 1999. Stays closer to the book. The actors had good chemistry. I really loved this =-)

  • Supuli HJuly 29, 2008Reply

    Its a moving adaptation of the Jane Austen novel.It revolves around fanny,A bright,spirited young woman,her discovery of family,friendship &love!!

  • Amanda WJuly 30, 2008Reply

    really enjoyed it even if the story line was a little slow. But sweet story.

  • Henry WAugust 8, 2008Reply

    I loved this! Full of passion, joy and an aspect of sadness. Fanny Price is the perfect heroin, kind, loving etc, and Billie Piper brings that to the characater wonderfully, and she is overall great in the role. Story told wonderfully, with a great ensemble of cast!

  • sage mAugust 12, 2008Reply

    Not fully accurate to the book but great cast and lovely sets. Piper was good with acting her role, once I got used to her teeth (sorry, but they were big and distracted me everytime she smiled, which is silly cos she actually has a nice smile), Steadman did great at acting the complete bitch, and Ritson was just perfect on his stealth but naive guy role. I’ll go check out the ’99 version when I have a chance…

  • Galuh TAugust 14, 2008Reply

    i think the cast was poor. but nevertheless, anything that comes out of jane austen’s books always fascinate me!

    Oh! Oh! *shaking head* Oh! I can’t believe that fool of an arrogant fool tried to convince the innocent cousin of the family and ended up having sex with her cousin. Oh! Oh! Oh! That man! Nevertheless, it’s a great Jane Austen movie! Maybe the book would be better!

  • aysan mAugust 28, 2008Reply

    just watched it this is well sweet

  • AnonymousAugust 29, 2008Reply

    Some people are terribly miss-cast. They’ve changed the character of Fanny completely from what Jane Austen wrote, and because she’s so out of character in some scenes it almost justifies Mrs Norris criticism of her. Whatever idiot wrote this and thought he could improve on Austen is sadly mistaken. Rushworth is too normal (Hugh Bonneville makes a BRILLIANT Mr Rushworthin the 1999 big-screen version), and Mrs Norris is meant to be much more severe. As an English major I studied this at varsity, had read it 5 times before that, and I have all three film versions. So I would know. Miss Crawford is wonderful. The only character who is at all believable. And while most of the characters are slightly or very wrong, and the plot violently butchered, it doesn’t violate the style and tone of Austen as grossly as the 1999 one. From all 3 you might be able to make one passable movie, but really they’re all rubbish.

  • Private USeptember 7, 2008Reply

    Not my favorite version of the book. But its Jane Austen, so it automatically gets three stars from me and the actress who played Fanny did a really good job, so it receives another half star.

  • Cath OSeptember 14, 2008Reply

    Billie Piper is hugely miscast in a badly misjudged version of Austen’s most subtle (aka boring!) novel. Spicing it up didn’t work at all.

  • Sasha KOctober 17, 2008Reply

    I enjoyed the book.
    However the movie cannot be accounted for even ten percent of that enjoyment. I am very greatfull that I had a chance to read it before destroying the entire perception of the idea with this movie.
    As much as I have adored Edmund – loveliest character with a perfectly fitted actor, is precisely how much I detested, to the point of complete rejection, Fanny. She was the completely opposite of what I have imagined whilst reading the novel. Forgive my bluntness, but the girl in the movie looked like a horse, not of an elegant, graceful, charming young woman. Her uncivil running around, also much as some mad animal vexed me a great deal; mind that such behaviour was never mentioned in Jane Austen’s book. Lastly, she most certainly looked at least ten years older than her cousins – Maria and Julia, while she was supposed to be the youngest out of all of them. She possessed an unarguably rare character trait – modesty and selflessness – she has not once spoke back to her stupid aunt Norris. While in the movie, she made a uncivil, almost vulgar comment that disconnected me with the character forever.

    Yeah, so what i’m saying is that this movie ruined fanny for me. fugly horse. everytime i saw her face she reminded me of ugly betty URGH!!! how can ANYONE fall in love with such a beast?

  • Movie FDecember 18, 2008Reply

    I saw this movie on PBS a few months back, and while there are a few aspects to the film that are lacking and while it, like the other versions of this story, do not stay completely true to the original story-line, this is fun movie to put in and watch.

  • Lexie TDecember 29, 2008Reply

    I was very prepared to laugh at this version but overall it was well done. The charcters were more to Austens portrayal than other versions and all put in solid performances except Piper – she annoyed me no end…but Fanny Price is my least favourite Austen heroine…maybe that was why!

  • Private UMarch 29, 2009Reply

    This got really bad reviews on Netflix but I thought it was fun. The writers were smart and didn’t spend a lot of time on the long, boring drawn-out play business. Edmund was hotter than in other adaptations I’ve seen and there were lots of shots of the adorable pug.

  • Julie GApril 13, 2009Reply

    Lighter look of the classic. Even Tom’s illness is less traumatic than in previous films. Repressed Edmund has an uncharacteristic burst of energy.

    I love Billie Piper. So I adored her as Fanny.
    It moved very very quickly. It would be best to already know the story or have seen other versions so you always knew what was going on. Very funny to watch Maria eye up Henry Crawford.
    Everyone seemed to have magic breasts that seem a bit impossible for correct period undergarments. But it was neat how the older women still wore fashions that would have been popular when they were younger.

    I like Mansfield Park, purely on its romantic elements and unlike others (some obivously jealous), I like Billie’s as an actor and I think she did well at making Fanny a rather ordinary person into something special and likeable. I love the scenes with Edmond and Fanny and only wish they had more. The sleezly Henry Crawford and bitchy Mary played the perfect antagonists. I did not really like the camera moving all the time, giving that sometimes annoying shaky look.

    It’s okay :S Though the ending was quite hasty, probably should’ve finished the book before watching the movie though. The girl who portrayed the young Fanny Price was really cute, and does look like a younger version of Billie Piper, but compared to everyone else, Billie Piper doesn’t seem to fit into the period film.

  • meril lDecember 30, 2009Reply

    Worst Austen adaptation I’ve seen. Not only is Piper her usual unlikeable self, Fanny had next to no lines, and the plot moved along extremely awkwardly. How did Edmund fall in love with Mary? How did his feelings revert to Fanny so quickly? Why are all the other characters just as two-dimensional? I guess we’ll never know.

  • Eira LJanuary 22, 2010Reply

    A bad, bad version of Mansfield Park. It has barely anything to do with the book and some of my favourite plot points had been changed in favour of – well, I don’t even know what. The characters did not stay in character and the casting seems to have been done in a hurry. Gah. But, I did like Blake Ritson in this, and not all was horrible about this movie, so 2 stars it is.

  • Stefania PFebruary 1, 2010Reply

    I haven’t read the novel yet and this is my first approach to Mansfield Park: I liked the plot and the actor palying Edmund too. But I ‘d rather see someone else for the role of Fanny.

    nothing extremely good, but being a huge fan of that eras, i still can’t say it was that bad…

    This is my favourite version of Mansfield Park to date. I’ve seen the one starring Francis O’Connor, which is a little weird and a little creepy; this version has none of that. Although it’s only an hour and thirty minutes in length, the director got through the story at a good pace, not rushed, and well laid-out. Billie Piper makes a good Fanny Price, and Blake Ritson is an endearing Edmund Bertram. As a side note, I can’t get over how much he resembles Adrien Brody!

    I absolutely adored this movie! It was amazing and honestly I didnt have many high hopes for it after seeing the preview because the book was my least favorite. Overall it was great though.

    The more screen adaptations I watch, the more I realize how much of an image for each character I already have in my mind for having read the book first. In this case, I thought Miss Crawford and Edmund were well-portrayed, but the rest of the cast fell short of my expectations. Fanny’s dark eyebrows were distracting, and she was much more gay and lively than the timid and frail creature presented in the book. Mrs. Norris was not at all the selfish, bustling busybody and Fanny’s cruel oppressor that she was in the book, and she was actually rather reserved. Lady Bertram was improved upon nicely, but several characters were entirely omitted.

    The movie managed to stay very true to some scenes in the book while taking very great liberties with others. Fanny hardly seemed to be the second-class family member that was so central to her character in the book, and maybe because of that, the movie did not include her visit to her family (as it wasn’t necessary for this character’s development). The movie also did not include any charming childhood scenes, which set the tone in the book for Fanny and Edmund’s relationship. What was included was well-done, and the movie was well-paced.

    As for the final scene – I have to admit, I’m not sure what the point was of having Edmund and Fanny show off a new style of dance, nice as it was to watch.

    I liked it alright, but I liked the 1999 version much better

    Faithful to the original work. Story is not my favorite though …

    This is a very bare bones adaptation of Mansfield Park which is in fact a fairly complicated tale. This is light and fluffy and quite entertaining but it’s not really Mansfield Park. Might be a good film for period drama enthusiasts (according to other reviews however, there are quite a few anachronisms) but not for Austen enthusiasts.

    Most likely the worst Austin adaptation I’ve had the displeasure of watching.

    I´ve seen it, its very close to the book than the version of 1998, I liked it

  • Tanya JJuly 7, 2012Reply

    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!

  • Jenni BNovember 30, 2012Reply

    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.

  • April VApril 22, 2014Reply

    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.

    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.

  • Vessela DJuly 1, 2014Reply

    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…:(

  • Richard DSeptember 8, 2014Reply

    They should have at least tried to make the main character look as if she belongs to the time period.

  • RB SSeptember 17, 2014Reply

    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.

  • James FDecember 2, 2014Reply

    I thought it was definitely a better movie than “Ernest Saves Christmas”, but I might be biased, since I’m a Billie Piper fan.

  • Frances HMay 17, 2016Reply

    A just okay version.

  • pj sNovember 2, 2016Reply

    I thought it was a delicious period romance although Billie Piper was all wrong.

  • Amy SNovember 23, 2019Reply

    I thought this movie could’ve been very good if it weren’t for the female lead actress. Horrible acting, sloppy hair, black roots, orange lips, black eyebrows, and her cleavage spilling out in every scene. She acted like an imbecilic flighty dimwit half the time and the other half the time she’s mumbling her lines well sinking her head into her chest. The other actors and actresses were all very well cast but I could not get past this girl. In my opinion she ruined the movie.
