The Optimists tells the story of Sam, a street performer with a unique outlook on life. Sam befriends two children who have led hard-knock lives and teaches them to look at life from a new perspective. The novelty of having a song and dance man as a friend soon turns into something much deeper, as Sam realizes that the children have just as much to teach him about life. Set amongst a wonderful London backdrop, Peter Sellers stars in one of his most charming and tender roles ever in The Optimists. Cinematography by Larry Pizer (Phantom of the Paradise, Isadora).
