Charlotte Brontë fans can enjoy 2011’s movie adaptation of Jane Eyre, which starred Michael Fassbender, Mia Wasikowska, Jamie Bell and Judi Dench, then catch another of Dench’s great film roles in 2013 drama Philomena.

There’s a double-bill for Leonardo di Caprio fans too, with James Cameron’s 1997 epic Titanic and Martin Scorsese’s Howard Hughes biopic The Aviator from 2004.

Elsewhere there’s an all-star cast in the 2011 movie version of Cold War thriller Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, which features Gary Oldman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Colin Firth, Stephen Graham, Tom Hardy, Ciarán Hinds, Kathy Burke, and the late John Hurt.
