Time to share thoughts on Mansfield Park


Tonight Jane Austen's Mansfield Park airs. I haven't read the book in ages--though I remember it being a struggle the first time--and I'm not sure what to expect from PBS. Will the movie be great, good, just okay, or truly dreadful? It's too early to say at this point. (Though some of you may have seen it since it aired in some places in 2007.) I'm off in search of reviews and such and maybe a clip or two from youtube.






"Mansfield Park has the dubious distinction of being disliked by more of Jane Austen's fans than any of her other novels."

The computer recorded it tonight and I hope to have a moment to watch it tomorrow! I've been loving these Jane Austen shows every week. I'll be sad when it's over.
