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

Aquarius:

A cherished dream is elusive. It will be best to change gear, at least for the immediate future. Pursue a moneymaking opportunity with creative appeal. Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
