30th October, 2012

Great films can have a really powerful influence on the viewer, and much of this is down to the great character with whom we can identify and connect with. Whether the film is brand new or a family favourite, there are a wealth of on-screen faces that can have a positive influence.

FILMCLUB has teamed up with LOVEFiLM to find out who YOUR movie role model is. Whether it's the plucky Hermione Granger from Harry Potter, the optimistic Charlie Bucket from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory or perhaps Chihiro from Spirited Away. Let us know by taking part in our movie role models poll and you could win a £50 Amazon voucher!
