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 (population 40,000 and growing).

That view, vividly shot by cinematographer Ed Lach-man and featuring music written by Byrne and songs performed by the Talking Heads, is danceably, irresistibly festive. You'll meet such amiable, offbeat folk as: bachelor Louis (John Goodman), who posts a "Wife Wanted" sign on his lawn; the world's laziest woman (Swoosie Kurtz); 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.
