This review is from: LILLIE (REISSUE) (DVD)
Lillie is nothing less than a masterpiece. Even though she was beautiful and could have easily settled into the life of a docile housewife, Lillie set her own standards. She became a celebrity endorser--for lack of a better term, she was one of the world's first super models. She was also one of the first celebrities to get caught up in scandals. She was a strong and intelligent woman who handled her own business affairs. She also did exactly what she wanted, from paying her husband to stay away to luring the married Prince of Whales into an elicit affair. There are thirteen episodes in this miniseries and all of them will keep you wide eyed because Lillie is always filled with surprises. In addition to a great story line and fantastic acting, even the costumes and sets deserve a mention. As you follow Lillie though her early years to the end of her life, the sets and wardrobes change right along with her, giving you a realistic look at how Victorian England processed over time. This series is a classic you will want to watch over and over again, and getting the DVD is an investment you won't regret.
