Restoration is a historical drama directed by Michael Hoffman. The story takes place during the 17th century in England and revolves around an aspiring physician, Robert Merival (Robert Downey Jr.). Robert finds himself in the good graces of King Charles II (Sam Neill) after saving one of the King's beloved spaniels. Robert is awarded with a place in the King's court, and accepts the position even though it means setting aside his budding career as a physician and spurning his best friend, John Pearce (David Thewlis). However, Robert quickly realizes that his new position is not without a price when he is ordered to marry one of the King's mistresses, Celia (Polly Walker). The King's intention is to ward off suspicion about his relationship with Celia by linking her with Robert. The King strictly orders Robert not to fall in love and not to become intimate with Celia. However, Robert finds himself falling for the beautiful and free-spirited Celia, but cannot act on his feelings without suffering the wrath of the King.moreless
