David Byrne trades in his oversized Talking Heads suit for Western wear and a black Stetson to direct, co-write and star in True Stories a Byrne's-eye view of Virgil, Texas.

That view, vividly shot by cinematographer Ed Lach-man and featuring music written by Byrne and songs performed by the Talking Heads, is danceable, irresistibly festive. You'll meet such amiable, offbeat folk as: bachelor Louis, who posts a "Wife Wanted" sign on his lawn; the world's laziest woman; a precision lawn-mower mar-ching team; and many more colorful participants in Virgil's Celebration of specialness. Innovative, energetic, funny and special. That's the truth of True Stories.
