The story is based on real life biracial fop named Joseph Bologne (Kelvin Harrison Jr.), the Chevalier of St. Georges … which is equivalent to an English knight. This man did it all, he was a champion fencer, as well as a violinist and composer, and his main goal was to be the conductor for the Paris opera, under the auspice of Marie Antoinette (Lucy Boynton). But he’s still a black man in a white society, which is he is reminded of daily, especially as he starts a love affair with the opera singer Marie-Josephine (Samara Weaving).

”Chevalier” is in theaters on April 21st. Featuring Kelvin Harrison Jr., Samara Weaving, Lucy Boynton, Marton Csokas and Minnie Driver. Written by Stefani Robinson. Directed by Stephen Williams. Rated “PG-13”
