Michael Hill
'The Jewellers'

Story Sparkles
by Syd Briscoe

The journey of Kiwi jeweller Michael Hill is detailed in this intriguing film. The brand has become an antipodean institution, but came from the humble beginnings of a failed music career and a temporary shop job given as a favour to the struggling young man's mother.

Struggle is the main theme of the black and white film, though there are highs and lows throughout. Hill and his wife meeting, marrying, and having children is contrasted with a devastating house fire... though this finally spurs them to start their own business.

Director Noah Marshall handles the action well here, keeping the audience emotionally in the moment while never lingering on one scene too long. The jewellery featured is captured in sparkly, glamorous fashion too, which adds to the piece's commercial as well as narrative value.
