Fanny Price came from a poor family and was sent to live with wealthy relatives in Mansfield Park when she was ten. While she is treated with disdain by her aunt Mrs. Norris as a kind of servant, it is above all her cousin Edmund who is close to her and who encourages her to her own literary attempts. Patricia Rozema’s adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel of the same name combines the literary model with elements from letters and the author’s diary. Mansfield Park is both a re-reading and an update of the material, as the director emphasizes the role of slavery as the foundation of the luxurious lifestyle of the book’s protagonists.


Presented by Telefilm Canada in partnership with the Canada Council for the Arts and the Government of Canada.
