2013,Post-Apocalyptic America. An unnamed wanderer retrieves a Postman's uniform and undelivered bag of mail. He decides to pose as a postman and deliver the mail to a nearby town, bluffing that the United States government has been reinstated and tricking the town into feeding him. However, he reluctantly becomes a symbol of hope to the townspeople there who begin to remember the world that once was and giving them the courage to stand up to a tyrannical warlord and his army.
The first feature film based on a science fiction/fantasy book to star Olivia Williams. The film is based on the book of the same name by David Brin. Williams would later go on to star as Mam Ward in Seventh Son (2014), which was based on the fantasy book "The Spook's Apprentice" by Joseph Delaney. See more »

Kostner gives a pretty flat performance in a movie with an absurd premise. His "character development" seemed limited to getting a girl pregnant (in this new world most males are sterile). He spends the rest of the movie referring to this woman as "weird" ... in pseudo-cool dude asides. Making it a perfect(ly awful) flick is the sucaryl sentimental ending dedicating a statue to the make believe postman who single-handedly saved American civilization.
Gimme a break!
Expensive glitz isn't better glitz.
