New This Weekend: I Used to Be Funny and In A Violent Nature

Closes May 31
The untold story of a Black French maestro

Inspired by the incredible true story of composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. The illegitimate son of an African slave and a French plantation owner, Bologne (Kelvin Harrison Jr. in a tour de force performance) rises to improbable heights in French society as a celebrated violinist-composer and fencer, complete with an ill-fated love affair and a falling out with Marie Antoinette (Lucy Boynton) and her court.

Few people are as deserving as the grand-scale biopic as Joseph Bologne, and even when it’s hitting false notes, “Chevalier” dazzles because of the untapped magic of its central character.

The always dashing Harrison gives a wholly freeing performance, uplifting this biopic to a visually resplendent and captivating take on a musical genius.
