Mansfield Park (2007)

The 1999 Mansfield Park is pretty edgy and takes some liberties with Jane Austen's story. This PBS film sticks to the story a little better but isn't as satisfyingly passionate. The Crawfords in the movie are immediately untrustworthy and shallow, while Austen's Crawfords are much more interesting and surprise you with their deceitfulness. At least that's how I remember the novel. Anyway, it was entertaining but not as good as Persuasion and Northanger Abbey.
