olde_fashioned: (JA -- MP -- Fanny)
I have just finished watching ITV's skeleton of Jane Austen's Mansfield Park. I am most seriously displeased. I am now going to bring out my sarcastic weapons without any apologetic restraints and wield them with utter ferocity in the general direction of whoever is responsible of ruining this story. Do not read this tirade review if you are an ardent fan of this movie. (although I do not see how any could exist, haha) They seem to have kept the names and changed the rest. Why bother to adapt something if you're not going to tell the story properly???? Grrrrrrr…

I knew I would not like Billie Piper the moment the cast list was released and I saw her picture. Without seeming to “judge a book by its cover” she is not at all period-looking or suitably “meek” or sweet or downtrodden enough to play Fanny Price. At least Jane Austen’s Fanny, that is. I was left with the distinct impression that somewhere along the line, PBS was given the wrong tape and we were subjected to some non-Austen contraption designed to torture and confuse the viewer.

What was with the HAIR in this movie? Fanny has a bleach job (and a bad one at that!) while Tom and Henry looked like something a cat would drag in. Edmund’s hair was plastered to his head like he hadn’t taken a bath in weeks. And makeup? Lipstick?? *fans self*

Her hair Louisa! Her HAIR!!! )

Since the first batch seemed to be so popular, I made more icons of the new ITV Jane Austen adaptations; Mansfield Park, Persuasion, and Northanger Abbey, with some of the Kate Beckinsale/Mark Strong Emma, which ITV will also be airing. ;-)

[+] 1-7 are of Persuasion
[+] 8-17 are of Northanger Abbey
[+] 18-22 are of Mansfield Park
[+] 23-32 are of Emma

Comment and credit if taking, thou shalt not steal, and enjoy!

Oh! then the point is clear. Miss Price is not out! )
