So that brings us to the political controversy of the movie. In effect what makes his kids special? Because he is part of the 1 percent?

His kids are in Elysium Middle School while the rest of us have ours in 18th Street('s) School
His kids aren't "special". They are lucky. Public services exist so people don't become victims of bad luck. I have no problem with the 1% spending money, its the hoarding of wealth and privilege that is the problem.
Just as any resident born into, married into or however they got into Elysium. They are specialy serviced because they were lucky
