New British Heist Movie, 'Plastic,' Sees A Group Of Students Sucked Into The Criminal Underworld.

Allen, Speleers, De Souza and Poulter play a group of university students who are looking to make a lot of money in the fastest way possible and aren't worried about issues of morality or law breaking. They meet smart and glamorous Frankie (Rigby) who works a data processor for a credit card company and helps devise a way of making the gang's money-making schemes a lot simpler.

The group head to the States to put their plan into action in Miami but run into trouble when it emerges they've robbed the worst possible victim; a notorious gangster called Marcel (Thomas Kretschmann), who demands that his debt be repaid and threatens murder. Tasked with repaying a debt of $2 million within a week, the gang dream up a risky jewel heist and pray that they are able to pull it off in time.

Watch The 'Plastic' Trailer:

The slick and stylish trailer reveals director Julian Gilbey's movie to be a cross between the sun-soaked thriller Spring Breakers and the gritty British teen drama, Skins. Based on a true story, the story of the crime-driven young adults will recall Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, looking at the materialism and greed of the modern age and those who will stop at nothing to make themselves rich.

Plastic will be released on the 2nd May.
