Based on the best-selling pair of memoirs from father and son David and Nic Sheff, Beautiful Boy chronicles the heartbreaking and inspiring experience of survival, relapse, and recovery in a family coping with addiction over many years.
The real Nic Sheff stated in a Q & A that the drawing book that David, Steve Carell in the movie finds of his son's addiction struggles was drawn by Nic's real life half brother Jasper Sheff.

In many of the scenes in airports, characters are shown at the gates greeting other characters/bidding them farewell. Following the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, however, no one is allowed past security who isn't a ticket holder.
