The oddsmakers might want to reconsider the Cannes Film Festival competition after the jury just added Ken Loach’s Route Irish to the roster: a lot of Cannes Festival prizes have been routed to the filmmaker. He has been nominated for the Golden Palm nine times, and won in 2006 for The Wind That Shakes the Barley. He has won 10 other Cannes awards during his career, including two Jury Prizes–for Raining Stones and Hidden Agenda–and one for his body of work. His latest film focuses on two former soldiers, in love with the same woman, who hire on as contractors in Iraq. The title refers to a strip of highway that is a supply route from the Baghdad Airport.
