This was one of the most impactful moment of this movie, at least for me, because it showed that Guy didn’t actually know any more than the others about science, nature, and all that. He was just like them - acting off what he knew and thought to be true. He literally thought TOMORROW WAS A PLACE. He wasn’t being poetic when he said “ride the sun to tomorrow;” he was being literal. And that was when I realized the true message of the movie. It wasn’t that you need to get with the times and that young people have it all together. It wasn’t that at all. The message was this:
To not be afraid of the dark and to follow the light because there is ALWAYS hope. Even when the world seems to be ending, there is still hope because beyond the dust and smoke and clouds that obstruct it, the light is still shining.
