Chivalry offers a fresh new look on gender politics and romance and asks the question: can one build and sustain a successful, relevant career in Hollywood without sacrificing their principles.
Chivalry explores the truths and the myths behind these characters, their judgements of each other and their assumptions of themselves, seeking to break down and explore classic stereotypes. Chivalry grants the audience permission to laugh while asking complex questions that as a society, we often find hard to discuss.
