Q & A following the screening of MANSFIELD PARK with Patricia Rozema and Brenda Austin Smith

“Patricia Rozema’s daring, gorgeous interpretation of Jane Austen’s MANSFIELD PARK shuns vapors and swooning in favour of the author’s satirical commentary upon class and her times. What Rozema has done is alter the nature of the book’s insufferable protagonist, Fanny Price, by pulling from Austen’s journals and writings and injecting some conviction, chutzpah and outspoken rebelliousness into a heroine who has been termed “a monster of complacency”. Fanny is, as a child called to Mansfield Park by her aunt, Lady Bertram to work as a servant in the huge ramshackle estate. Sir Thomas Bertram owns Mansfield Park and, over time, he and his large brood look upon Fanny as one of their own. They watch her grow into a sturdy young woman who has a keen imagination, a wilful spirit and a secret love for her cousin, Edmund Bertram.

Reviews

"Mansfield Park is a more daring, radically darker, and even naughtier version than the 1983 miniseries.” - Paula Nechak /Seattle Post Intelligencer “Intelligence and beauty – and teasing romance – shape Mansfield Park into a gorgeous, enchanting experience. This may be the first film that truly captures Jane Austen’s characters in flesh and bone.” - Peter Stack / San Francisco Chronicle
