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.

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. Byrne encourages viewers to appreciate the oddball characters he highlights and shows how everyone is interconnected. Characters drink socially in some settings. The film is appropriate for all ages, though teens and adults will get the most out of it.
