Story


An adaptation of Noah Gordon's bestseller, about young Englishman Rob Cole (Payne) is both blessed and cursed with the ability to sense when someone is about to die. He tries to study medicine, but medieval England is a backwater of religious quacks and superstition. Hearing of a gifted physician and teacher in faraway Persia, he sets off, traveling from his English purgatory to the promised land and to the tutelage of the Persian philosopher and scientist Ibn Sina (Kingsley).

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the setting and old fashioned structure of the story won't be to every taste. But "The Physician" is quite good at recreating its era and reminding us that once, long ago, it was the West that was backward and always looking East for enlightenment..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]
“..a hearty historical epic that pits intellectual progress against the stifling influence of world religions..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
