Mansfield Park

Last night I saw Mansfield Park (for the third time) at the TIFF Lightbox — it was part of their Books on Film Club series about novels adapted into films, hosted by Eleanor Wachtel. ¬†After the screening there was a great on-stage interview with the director, Patricia Rozema.

If you’re curious about this daring adaptation of a Jane Austen novel, you can borrow the DVD from Media Commons, and you’ll find quotations about the film, plus a bibliography, in my Canadian Women Film Directors Database.
