An aspiring young physician, Robert Merivel found himself in the service of King Charles II and saves the life of a spaniel dear to the King.

The situation worsens when Merivel finds himself in love with his new wife. Eventually, the King finds out and relieves Merivel of his position and wealth.

And through his travels and reunions with an old friend, he rediscovers his love for true medicine and what it really means to be a physician.

The first half follows the bawdy adventures of medical genius, Merivel, who lived it up during the Seventeenth century. The second half has him down on his luck and seeing the light as he turns to saving humanity. It's a shame that the emotional second half wasn't given the treatment and the attention wasted on the excesses of the first half.
"Restoration" is an overlooked jewel of a movie, a fascinating and atmospheric journey to another time and place. Robert Downey, Jr. is outstanding as a young physician who develops depth and compassion. The music, costumes and settings are full of rich detail. While Meg Ryan's character as an insane Irish girl was perhaps a bit overwrought, I found little to fault in the movie. I have seen it three times and enjoy it thoroughly each time. I'm sorry I missed it on the big screen. Interesting scenes portraying 17th century medical practice, the plague, the Great Fire of London. Not for the squeamish, but not overly violent either.
