I agree with Deuce that backstory was lacking, but I think his was mistaken about Rey. He said she doesn't talk about her family until late in the film, but that's not right. She explains it to BB-8 early on when they go into town together. Much of her backstory is told visually through hints, like the scratching that DM mentioned, or the rag doll which looked like an X-Wing pilot (a memory of Luke?), or the vision sequence later.
Anyway, the larger point stands. There isn't much exposition in this movie. That helps the film move along at a brisk pace, but does leave a ton of unanswered questions.
Oh, and I want to quibble with Deuce's point about George Lucas. Love him or hate him, he gets sole credit for writing and directing the original 1977 Star Wars film. It can (and should) be argued that the film was greatly strengthened by his editors (including his wife), but you can't say he didn't write and direct it.
