Director: Stephen Williams

Set in Paris in the days before the French Revolution, Chevalier is an opulent footnote to black history about Joseph Bologne (Kelvin Harrison Jr.), born in Guadeloupe as the illegitimate son of an aristocratic French plantation owner and an African slave who shocked and tantalized society with his astounding genius as a composer, violinist, and swordsman. He attracted the attention and admiration of Marie Antoinette and her court with uncommon grace, talent and sex appeal. The film chronicles the triumphs and tragedies faced by this brilliant musician who rose to the pinnacle of popularity while battling racial prejudice his entire life.

As a celebration of a musical genius, Chevalier is a wildly entertaining ride, a thrilling history lesson in the making that remains as timely as ever.
