Storyline

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 Huggo

Trivia

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.

Yes!! A Movie for Me
29 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to write about Bonneville in light of the user comment by some of these other users and critics.. I am sick of reading negative or poor reviews from films from all of these sour men. I read a few sub par reviews and thought to myself, Bonneville can't be that boring and it wasn't. I was happy to see a film that fits an older demographic. I went with my grandmother and it has been about 10 years since she has gone to the movies, she was pleased there was something out there she could relate to and not be offended by everything that is on the screen, without giving away much about the film, it was a warm film that highlighted 3 relationships and went through feelings that affect many woman as they reach older age. Worth the ticket, movies like this don't come around every year... all these old men get off these boards and out of the papers and get a life, take films for what they are and why they are made, don't be a hater just because you are sitting at your desk writing about 3 awesome woman.
