Mansfield Park, the dullest of Jane Austen's novels, has metamorphosed on screen into a Regency bonkbuster crackling with barely suppressed lesbianism. Fanny Price, the most annoying, insufferably self-righteous prig in English literature, is transformed into a feisty little minx and sexual magnet for both men and women. Austen fans, who broadly maintained a dignified silence while Emma, Pride And Prejudice and Persuasion got the TV and big-screen treatment, are not best pleased by the BBC's latest "disrespectful" cinematic adaptation. They are particularly exercised that a Canadian director, Patricia Rozema, who made her name with magical realist lesbian art films and who admits to finding the book "vaguely twee", has modelled the new, funkier Fanny on Austen herself. Having long fended off claims that Austen was a lesbian - fuelled by the fact that her family burned most of her letters after her death - few are happy that their heroine is being "unnecessarily and wrongly" raunched up for the cinema. The film, which has not yet been seen by the British Board of Film Classification, will be released in March.
