Chevalier Review

In theaters now, ‘Chevalier’ brings to screens a story that absolutely deserved to be told but ends up telling it in an immature and overly melodramatic way that makes it seem more like soap opera than even the opera performances that dot the story. ‘Chevalier’ is based on one of the most compelling (and sadly overlooked) real lives in history.

Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges was the illegitimate son of an African slave and a French plantation owner. Bologne (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) rises to improbable heights in French society as a celebrated violinist-composer and fencer, complete with an ill-fated love affair Queen Marie Antoinette (Lucy Boynton) herself and her court.
