For no other reason than to establish The Theme, Samantha Morton asks her mute, wheelchair-bound mother mid-film whether it’s better to have something than nothing, when you know you’ll never have everything. To find out, Expired hews to Sundance’s never-good-to-begin-with storytelling template: take one quirky outsider (the wackier her socks, the better), fill out her life with eccentric friends and family (don’t forget the kooky neighbor!) and have her narrate the idiosyncrasies of her experience.
