The distressed emotions that Arvilla Holden are feeling upon the death of her husband Joe Holden are compounded by dealing with Joe's adult daughter, Francine Packer. Joe and Arvilla were lovingly married for twenty years, and although they lived in Pocatello, Idaho - Arvilla's home town - they traveled the world on one adventure after another. Joe was from Santa Barbara, California, where Francine and the extended Holden family still live. Arvilla is certain that Joe wrote a new will after they got married, but since that will is nowhere to be found, the official will is the one that Francine has in her possession, which outlines certain things that Arvilla knows Joe would not now have wanted. That will states that Joe's embalmed body is to be interned with Francine's mother in Santa Barbara, despite Joe already having been cremated. Arvilla knows that Joe would have wanted his ashes scattered into the wind. The will also deeds the house in which Arvilla and Joe lived their entire ... Written by
The car used in this film was a 1966 Pontiac Bonneville Convertible, of which about 11,000 were produced. The standard model came with a 389 cubic inch (6.4 liter) engine with 2-barrel carburetor that produced about 325 horsepower. It was also available with an optional 421 cubic inch (6.9 L) engine with 4-barrel carb or GM's "Tri-Power" carb. Turbo-Hydramatic 3 speed transmission was standard, manual optional. The front seat in the movie car was a standard split-back bench seat, but bucket front seats were also available. The dark copper-red exterior of movie car was not an authentic color offered by Pontiac-General Motors in 1966. Original available colors included Black, White, Milano Maroon, Nocturne Blue, Martinique Bronze (aka Martinique Gold), and a creamy shade of Yellow. The interior of the movie car appears original (judging by the door panels) and is white/ivory. Other available interior colors included Black, Nocturne Blue, and Martinique Bronze. The rear-view mirror had been removed from all of the movie cars, probably to prevent the chrome mirror housing from casting a reflection of the film crew. The opaque black steering wheel appeared to be an aftermarket replacement, as the originals were transparent acrylic, tinted to match the interior color, overlaid on a chrome circular rod. See more »
A stretch of highway with a large distinctive rock formation in the background is seen right before the scene in which Arvilla gives her friends their sunglasses and scarves. Much later in the film, when they are supposedly in another state, the same stretch of road with the unique rock formation (also same trees, etc.) is seen again. See more »
I can't leave Arlo alone that long!
Well how would you know? You haven't left his side since highschool.
I have so!
Trips to the ladies' room don't count.

Why aren't there more movies like BONNEVILLE?! We attended a sneak preview this Monday and couldn't believe we'd stumbled upon 90 minutes of such thoughtful and entertaining enjoyment! My friends and I couldn't stop talking about how we can really identify with these folks, we could BE living in this movie ourselves, and that's why we feel so good after we've seen it. The plot twists and turns in Bonneville are the best part of a fantastic movie: with the road trip metaphor bringing us eye-blink gorgeous scenery around each and every turn in the road, the ups and downs of their relationship make us blink and THINK "what would I do"!
