Only When We’re Presented With Remarkably Bad and Cheaply Made Film Adaptations

Standard

Alert Janeite Lorraine sent us a link to an article in the Globe and Mail that has almost nothing to do with Jane Austen, but the author nonetheless must needs extract his pound of flesh:

In the title role is the strapping young British actor Joseph Morgan, who is best known in North America for his roles in Master and Commander, alongside Russell Crowe, and in Oliver Stone’s lavish Alexander. To British audiences, Morgan is a perennial TV charmer, having appeared in four popular series and a much-discussed version of Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park (Austen fans are a hard, bitter lot).

Lieutenant Price looks most Romanesque there. 😉
