In a post-apocalyptic, totally anarchic America, circa 2013, a defector from the ranks of murderous despot General Bethlehem masquerades as a representative of the good old U.S. Postal Service. But his ruse so delights the weary, oppressed people he meets that it indeed becomes real--and he finds himself championing their rights and the American Way. Adapted from the novel by David Brin.

Although the film was not a critical or commercial hit when it was first released, Kevin Costner told the New York Daily News in late 2000, "I loved making THE POSTMAN. I understand they're showing it in school now to illustrate mythic heroes. Does it attach itself to me like some blemish? That's just cute journalism. I love that movie the way [Frank] Capra loved IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE."
