Harvey Milk: first film-related trend of 2009

Of all the films pending release in early 2009, MilkGus Van Sant‘s biopic of the gay rights leader/politician Harvey Milk – is most likely to have an impact on the fashion front. As we stride towards a boot-legged, tight-hipped summer, the movie might just start to look prescient: suggesting alternatives to the side parting (big hair!) and yet more reasons to grow a moustache.

Whilst it’s unlikely that Sean Penn will be raising much sartorial interest (despite a great performance) his more fashion-friendly co-stars just might. Emile Hirsch, who graced the cover of AnOther Magazine last year, wears his big-frame specs with a certain nous and his leather jacket/plaid shirt combo is thriftstore classic. Meanwhile, Lucas Grabeel turns more than a few Castro-bound heads, looking especially fetching in a frock, though, in general, he works the 70s look with aplomb as does Milk’s love interest, James Franco.

Milk is in UK cinemas from January 23rd.
