Dealing with the stress of medical school studies two years ago, Dr. Allen Reeves, at the suggestion of an operating room nurse, found the best medicine for him was in those other needles: knitting. Mind you, he didnt know how to knit at the time. Not a problem. The Texas native, then a student at Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED), turned to YouTube videos to learn the craft. To hear the resident physician in internal medicine at Akron General Medical Center tell it, he wasnt the least bit intimidated. Thats because learning new things is part of his DNA. Prior to entering medical school in his 30s, Reeves was a mathematician and then spent 11 years as a software engineer. It got to the point that I was doing less engineering work and more management, which was becoming very repetitive.


The Physician: a quest for enlightenment in the Dark Ages

The movie is set in 11th century England, at a time when medicine in Europe was still in the dark ages. Based on a bestselling novel by US author Noah Gordon, The Physician premiered in Berlin ahead of its Christmas release. Director Phillipp Stolzl told of the challenges he faced in adapting a 600-page novel to film: How does one condense such a novel into a feature film and still manage to capture its spirit and remain loyal to the story? That was our biggest challenge. English actor Tom Payne plays the young apprentice, Rob Cole. I realised that actually a lot of Robs journey in the film is about family, really, and the fact that he doesnt have one and he finds family everywhere he goes, Payne said. Besides being worlds away, the school he wants to attend does not admit Christians. So Rob decides to take on the guise of a Jewish student. Ensues the tale of an adventurous and inspiring quest for medical knowledge in a violent world filled with superstition and prejudice. Noah Gordon was delighted with the movie adaptation of his novel: How impressed I am with this cast, how wildly talented I think they are and what a wonderful job Philipp did to make a long and interesting movie, so thank you all. Tom Payne stars alongside Swedens Stellan Skarsgard, French actor Olivier Martinez and Englands Emma Rigby, as well as Sir Ben Kingsley in the role of his mentor. The Physician is out in Germany and Spain on Christmas Day. Copyright 2013 euronews
