Face Value

Television (Full Length) – 2003

The dangers of judging a book by its cover are explored in this 2003 documentary. Interviewees from a range of backgrounds weigh in on the different ways a person’s looks affect their lives. Former model Vivian highlights how beauty can be relative, rugby player Matua talks stereotypes, and retiree Beatrice reflects on how beauty has changed over the years. Meanwhile Niki Harré and Marie Wilson share research on how looks can affect relationships and employment. The assembled guestperts also give a verdict on the most attractive Kiwi politician. Spoiler warning: it’s great news for Winston Peters.                   

If I'd listened to my mother there was no such thing as the ideal man.
– Interviewee Beatrice
