David Byrne, leader of the innovative rock group Talking Heads, whimsically pays homage to the mythical small Texas town of Virgil, a town populated by honest, sometimes slightly askew, people living out their lives and dreams in innocent dignity.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Its kitschy leanings may wear thin on some, but True Stories is a disarmingly big-hearted, dreamy vision of Americana.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that True Stories is a quirky musical written and directed by David Byrne, the front man for the band Talking Heads.
