A film adaptation this shows the 1940's land girls in a contempoaray film , Land girls were used in the second world war to take over the jobs that the men would have done . This influenced the style as the clothing they wore could not be feminine , they had to be able to work in it . I believe this is were Orwell gained influence for the character of Julia . Julia worked what would in them days have been a mans job and wore overall's .
