The year is 2013. One man walked in off the horizon and hope came with him.
It is 2013. War has crippled the Earth. Technology has been erased. Our only hope is an unlikely hero. What begins as a con game becomes one man's quest to rebuild civilization by resuming postal service.

Guilty pleasure written all over it. After a fairly promising beginning, the premise becomes completely ridiculous and it is told with such seriousness and sentimentality at times that it borders on laughable, but still it remains a pretty entertaining film, largely down to Costner and Patton, but also Costner's willingness to commit to the unbelievable aspects with such conviction to help sell the story. Whilst he doesn't always succeed, you have to admire the effort.
