True Stories

Directed by
David Byrne

True StoriesFollowing the success of the Talking Heads concert film STOP MAKING SENSE (screening in its new restoration September 29 thru October 5) David Byrne was given free reign to bring his distinct creative vision to narrative film, and the resulting TRUE STORIES has become an inevitable, eccentric cult classic. (Catch it by itself or in a double feature with STOP MAKING SENSE!)

Talking Heads singer David Byrne plays host to this bizarre patchwork of tabloid-inspired tales, set in the fictional town of Virgil, Texas. Cruising the streets in his cherry-red drop-top, Byrne introduces viewers to the local eccentrics gearing up for the town’s 150th anniversary. They include a community leader (Spalding Gray) with a thing for veggies, a woman (Swoosie Kurtz) so lazy she won’t leave her bed, a lovelorn country singer (John Goodman) and more!
