Notes:
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."
