1. The Film Is Based on a Series of Books

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff: The Kristine Carlson Story is based on the book series Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff, which Kristine Carlson and her husband, Dr. Richard Carlson, co-authored.

The novel, as well as the film, chronicles the life of author Carlson as her world crumbles after her late husband’s untimely death.

The 58-year-old single mother finds her voice and the strength to manage and rebuild her life with her two daughters despite tremendous sadness.

It also honors Locklear’s sobriety.

While the movie is about Carlson’s tragic loss, it also honors actress Locklear’s recovery.

The 59-year-old actress formerly struggled with addiction but was able to overcome it with the help of her family. She even celebrated a year of sobriety in April 2020.

“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how horrible things appear today, life goes on, and tomorrow will be better,” Locklear posted on Instagram at the time.
