The Screen Guide

The Postcard Bandit - that's what the media called Brendan James Abbott, because rumour has it he used to send postcards of his travels to the coppers chasing him. In a career spanning a decade, BJ knocked off almost five million dollars of the banks' money and much of this has never been recovered. This is the story of BJ, it celebrates his spirit - it's a warts'n'all account of a unique, gifted Aussie bloke who took the wrong road and who is now paying a heavy price in solitary confinement in a maximum security facility.
