This is my third Mansfield Park adaptation. This one is movie length (120 minutes) like the 1999 version. As it is movie length, some things have to be left out – the trip to Sotherton and the Portsmouth scenes (instead of going to Portsmouth Fanny is left at Mansfield Park when the family go to London).
Once again, Fanny is more active than depicted by Austen and things seem to happen out of doors – instead of a ball there is a picnic. This is not my favourite version, but it is lovely to watch and sticks to the spirit of the plot if not the plot itself.
We never see the Parsonage in this version – in fact we only ever see Mansfield Park.
