Without looking this up, I'm going to say that I remember reading that the Nashs' son also suffers from schizophrenia.

I suspect that creating a dramatic portrayal of this disorder is difficult at best, so to present the voices that Nash hears as actual characters works well because for a long while into the film, we--the audience--think that these people are real. As a result, we sympathize with Nash.

I thought that Russell Crowe was magnificent in this role.
