Mansfield Park

Show Summary

Mansfield Park is a dramatic TV series directed by David Giles based on Jane Austen's novel of the same name that centers on the nineteenth century life of Fanny Price (Sylvestra Le Touzel), a young and relatively impoverished girl who is raised in the richer world of her uncle and aunt, Sir Thomas and Lady Bertram (Bernard Hepton and Angela Pleasence). Even though she is raised with her four cousins, Tom (Christopher Villiers), Edmund (Nicholas Farrell), Maria (Samantha Bond), and Julia (Liz Crowther), Fanny is consistently treated as an inferior cousin to all but Edmund, who as a hopeful clergyman often acts towards her with compassion and kindness. As her love for her cousin grows, the vanity and lack of self control the other Betram children have spun to include the solicitous and devious siblings Henry and Mary Crawford (Robert Burbage and Jackie Smith-Wood) in a cruel game of affectionate cat and mouse. In a time where money and standing meant everything, the kind hearted and moral Fanny Price is torn between following her heart and taking any offer of future comfort.moreless
