Today, the Guardian offers more speculation about this year's Cannes contenders: with Sofia Coppola and Pedro Almodóvar considered shoo-ins for the festival's lineup. "Other possible hopefuls include David Lynch's experimental Inland Empire, Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Babel," Aki Kaurismaki's Lights in the Dusk and The Caiman, a satirical study of Silvio Berlusconi by the Italian film-maker Nanni Moretti," reports the British paper. Richard Linklater's Fast Food Nation, Darren Aronofsky's The Fountain, and Ken Loach's The Wind That Shakes the Barley are considered "outside bets."
