The Postman - 1997

Kevin directing Joe
Kevin and Joe watching scene just shot.

The Postman was Kevin's second venture into directing but unlike the first time with Dances with Wolves no one thought too much of this futuristic tale of post holocaust America. What the critics missed (or maybe they didn't) was that communications among humans is probably one of the single most important things to us.

Kevin gave his three older children a much bigger role then the ones they had in DWW. Joe was just walking when DWW was filmed and this time he was the Letter Boy. A pivotal role to Kevin in the whole movie was the look on the boy's face when he thought he had missed the Postman.

Annie in DWW was a young Christine (Stands With A Fist) when the Indians attacked her family which were Cindy (Kevin's wife) was her mother, and the younger children were Lily and Joe playing with the chickens. This time Annie was Ponytail and Lily was the little girl, Lily March who sang "God Bless America" as the Postman rode off to deliver their mail.
