Seize the Day is a 1986 drama film directed by Fielder Cook. It stars Robin Williams and Jerry Stiller. It is based on the novel of the same name by Saul Bellow.
After losing his job, his girlfriend, and his sanity, Salesman Tommy Wilhelm (Williams) packs up for New York City to try to repair the pieces of his broken life. His skill as a salesman comes naturally, but his strained relationship with his father certainly does not. Tommy must face the father he never really knew while trying to balance the new life that he attempts to carve out for himself.
