Ken Loach film added to Cannes bill

Ken Loach's new film has joined the Cannes line-up

Ken Loach's new movie Route Irish, a drama set in Iraq, has been added to the line-up of this year's Cannes Film Festival.

The director - whose comedy drama Looking For Eric was screened at the festival last year - has had his latest work added just two days before the event begins.

Route Irish is set in both Liverpool and Iraq and tells of two former soldiers in love with the same woman.

Loach won the Palme d'Or award at Cannes in 2006 for The Wind That Shakes The Barley and earned strong reviews for Looking Tor Eric, starring Eric Cantona.

Cannes Film Festival starts on May 12 and runs to May 23.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

You feel optimistic and for good reason. An admirer has been trying to win your heart. All this attention is flattering. If you're single, keep playing hard to get. The more you resist, the more they'll persist. Are you already in a relationship? Start pursuing a cherished dream. Fulfilling your heart's desire will make you a better partner and friend. Dwelling on what might have been will just make you bitter. Take a risk. It's better to try and fail than be paralysed by fear.More
