Unfortunately the fonts can't be accessed.
- make the same document with XeTeX, or even with OpenOffice or whatever 
(and turn it into a PDF in the later case); if the trouble remains, it 
comes from Acrobat or the font. Otherwise, the trouble comes from the 
packages or LuaTeX, so:
- Remove fontspec, i.e. use luaotfload directly: \input luaotfload.sty 
\font\myfont{Optima-Oblique.otf}, etc. If the problem remains:
- Load the font by yourself, without luaotfload.sty 
(http://wiki.luatex.org/index.php/Use_a_TrueType_font). If the problem 
remains: you have a bug.
