The movies are a reflection of society (and sometimes society is a reflection of the movies), so it's no surprise that plastic materials and products have often played a supporting role. In this slide show, we feature nine movies where the material has been a key player, either metaphorically or, more often, as part of a memorable set design or as a key prop.
I don't doubt that I may have missed some obvious choices. If a movie with a plastics connection comes to your mind, please let me know, and I will share your comments with the PlasticsToday audience.
To make this slideshow a bit more fun, the Next Slide links include a clue for the next movie in the queue. See if you can guess the titles. We'll start off with an easy one.
