England is Mine owes the viewers more

For a fan, who loves The Smiths and has watched the documentaries, this is a great film.
It shows a young man who is very different, who lives for words and for pop, and receives encouragement from his Mother who sees a special talent.  His chosen circle are confident in art, words and music.  His unchosen circle are not, but he tries to avoid conflict with varying degrees of success.  Problem is, the difference and avoiding conflict can come across of lack of care, concern and gratitude.
And I’m not sure that those who don’t know enough of the Morrissey story can enjoy the film enough.  Something more is needed to be done for those who are not on the inside.
Except, no doubt, that would be very un-Morrissey.
