Tarantino & Lee Among Cannes Nominees

QUENTIN TARANTINO's new movie INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS and ANG LEE's TAKING WOODSTOCK are among the nominees for the Cannes Film Festival's prestigious Palme d'Or award.
Tarantino's World War II drama, starring Brad Pitt, tells the story of a group of Jewish-American soldiers fighting in Nazi-occupied France.
It will go up against 19 other pictures at the French festival, which runs between 13 and 24 May (09).
Other movies to reach the coveted shortlist include Lee's Taking Woodstock, set during the legendary 1969 U.S. music festival, and Ken Loach's Looking for Eric, starring retired French soccer star Eric Cantona.
Tarantino won the Palme d'Or in 1994 with his second film Pulp Fiction, while Loach took the prize in 2006 with historical Irish drama The Wind That Shook the Barley.
