Time Out says
‘Special People’ follows pretentious, self-absorbed director-turned-special- needs educator Jasper (Dominic Coleman) as he tries to enthuse his class of wheelchair users about cinema. Edgar and Coleman’s script nails the creative paralysis and self-delusion that afflicts many failed artists, and the patronising, self-aggrandising way they relate to those ‘worse off’. In terms of character development and story the film is unspectacular and often rather blunt – one final-act twist feels shoehorned in to shock. But this is a well observed and likeable slice of DIY cinema.
