True Stories

1986 Rated PG 1hr 29m

Talking Heads front man David Byrne co-wrote, composed, directed and stars in this quirky musical journey into the odder side of small-town America. The residents of Virgil, Texas, are a motley crew -- from the woman who's too lazy to get out of bed (Swoosie Kurtz) to the shy man who must advertise for a wife (John Goodman). Byrne serves as our tall-hatted tour guide through the town's sesquicentennial "Celebration of Specialness."
