Kelvin Harrison Jr plays the Caribbean-born maestro, once declared ‘the most accomplished man in Europe’, in this period drama inspired by true events, who takes on Mozart in a duel-by-violin.

Composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges was born as the illegitimate son of an African slave and a French plantation owner. Through his talent Bologne rises to improbable heights in French society as a celebrated violinist-composer and fencer and brushes shoulders with the most elite characters of 18th centuary Paris, complete with an ill-fated love affair and a falling out with Marie Antoinette (Lucy Boynton) and her court.

Chevalier is enchanting as it retrieves an extraordinary Black life from historical obscurity and deems it biopic-worthy.
