Didja Notice?

 

The movie seen with an emphasis on imagery of wheat fields that Geoffrey falls in love with is probably 1978's Days of Heaven, written and directed by Terrence Malick.

 

Page 4 of the story mentions the ruins of old human megacities on the surface. Currently, the term "megacity" is used to describe very large cities, usually of populations of 10 million or more.

 

The boy's nom de guerre is revealed to be Morpheus. Nom de guerre is French for "war name".
