Leading co-stars Zoe Kazan and Paul Dano live together.
Zoe Kazan, who plays Ruby, also wrote the screenplay for this film. Kazan's grandfather is Elia Kazan, who directed On the Waterfront (1954).

The eccentric house that Calvin's mother lives in is supposed to be in Big Sur, but it's actually a house in the Hollywood Hills that once belonged to Sid Krofft, of "Sid & Marty Krofft" fame. Much of the dialogue in that scene describing material details about the house was written on the spot based on the actual owner's tour of the place on the day of the shoot.
The book that has been torn apart by the dog, Scotty, is a copy of the novel 'The Catcher in the Rye' by J.D. Salinger. Both the writer and the novel are referenced several times in the movie.
In a couple of scenes, a book by Jonathan Franzen can be clearly spotted.
