The Postman (1997)

R 12/25/1997 (US) Science FictionAdventureActionWar 2h 57m

The year is 2013. One man walked in off the horizon and hope came with him.


In 2013 there are no highways, no I-ways, no dreams of a better tomorrow, only scattered survivors across what was once the Unites States. Into this apocalyptic wasteland comes an enigmatic drifter with a mule, a knack for Shakespeare and something yet undiscovered: the power to inspire hope.
