British audiences will be focussing on the heavyweight battle between Mike Leigh and Ken Loach, who are bringing ‘Mr Turner’ and ‘Jimmy's Hall’ to the Croisette respectively. Early indications suggest that Leigh could prevent Loach from picking up his second Palme d’Or. 

The younger generation may still have their say on proceedings, though, with the ever-popular Ryan Gosling in contention for his directorial debut, ‘Lost River’ (formerly known as ‘How to Catch a Monster’ debuting.

And while a great deal of focus, derived from the celebrity gossip culture that runs in tandem with the art of filmmaking, will focus on Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s twin presence in Cannes, David Cronenberg will be hoping it isn’t enough to distract his picture, ‘Map to the Stars’, which stars the latter, ‘R-Patz’.
