Storyline

Tough, sexy, funny and heartbreaking, Lillies details the lives of Iris, May and Ruby Moss - Catholic sisters coming of age in a dockland terraced house. Familial love sustains them, and their fortunes are bound to those of their brother and their father. Set in the years immediately following the First World War, Lilies pulls no punches in its storytelling. It depicts a sensual, vivid and sometimes savage universe - where life is lived on a knife-edge of poverty, fuelled by various kinds of love. Dadda, the family's charismatic and mercurial father married very young, is now widowed, and his struggle to nurture his unruly children proves both moving and comic. Written by Anonymous

DVD's desperately need subtitles.Good news, subtitles now available.
15 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Review edit by Richard. RLJ Entertainment & Acorn TV has re-released the series and added subtitles. Look for that before purchase if important to you.

Original review by Richard I tried to watch this series on DVD and it looks like it would be enjoyable. However, without subtitles it is impossible for this American.

I just cannot understand the dialog. I get about 1 out of every 2 words.

The DVD's desperately need subtitles. The producers are missing a willing audience in the USA. This is a common problem with many BBC productions that fail to add subtitles. The amount of strain and concentration required to "TRY" to catch the meaning just makes the entire experience unpleasant.
