Who or what are you trying to stream this movie to?

If you're in the United States this is definitely illegal. Other countries, I'm not so sure about copyright laws, but I doubt it's legal, either.

Exactly how far does it get? Does it find the computer and folder you setup for sharing? Did you make sure the movie is in a format the Roku can play? Did you check with Roku support. Why are you jut looking for videos? Look for manuals.

I don't understand the reply, so you can see the shared folder but nothing underneath it? Are the movies in subfolders? Did you check to make sure the movie format will play on the Roku? Try putting a movie in the root of the shared folder the Roku does see.

Ah, so it's specific to Plex not just it seeing a shared folder over the network. Take a look here, will have better info on anything you need to check on https://forums.plex.tv/index.php/forum/84-roku-streaming-players/
