Fanny Price (O'Connor) is a poor relation, who has grown up with her wealthy cousins at their elegant home, Mansfield Park. While some of the Bertrams have been civil, others have treated Fanny as little better than a servant. However, cousin Edmund (Miller) has been very kind indeed and Fanny develops very warm feelings towards him. Then the entire family is thrown into chaos by the arrival of Henry Crawford (Nivola) and his sister Mary (Davidtz) and scandal seems about to break. Jane Austen's 3rd novel has been given a feminist slant and some belabored relevancy by Rozema.
