The Art of Costume Dramas
To coincide with the exhibition Illuminating Fashion: Dress in the Art of Medieval France and the Netherlands, the Morgan is screening a series of classic period dramas that sumptuously illustrate the fashion of the eras in which they are set.

With its lavish sets and stunning period attire, this film recounts the life and adventures of Robert Merivel, (Robert Downey Jr.) from his days as a favored physician in the service of King Charles II, to his trials as a doctor in a sanatorium, and finally attending to the sick during the Great Plague of London. Meg Ryan, Sam Neill, Ian McKellen, and Hugh Grant round out the outstanding cast in this Oscar winner for Best Costume Design.
