Default Re: "In the film" means... *What?

Surface film is surface tension. Try placing a sewing needle on the surface of a glass of water. if you are really careful, you can keep the needle from sinking due to surface tension. Surface tension along with capilary action is how tall trees get water all the way to the top from the roots, sometimes 100's of feet .
