True Stories


Opens April 14

David Byrne, serving as the director, writer and narrator, shares the wondrous story of an idiosyncratic Texas town, filled with musical characters, in a moment of celebration, with a parade and talent show. John Goodman, Swoozie Kurtz, Jo Harvey Allen and Spalding Gray are among those who make an appearance, as do the Talking Heads, who help fill the screen with classic songs. (U.S., 1986, 90m)
