This comedic musical vision of contemporary life marks the directorial debut of Talking Heads leader David Byrne. Written by Byrne and Pulitzer Prize-winner Beth Henley (Crimes of the Heart), this film looks at everyday life and the unique qualities which make ordinary people special. Based on Byrne’s collection of human-interest pieces taken from tabloid newspapers, this send-up of life in ‘middle America’ stars John Goodman and Swoosie Kurtz. Filmed at NorthPark Center in North Dallas, Texas (interior shots), and the now-demolished Big Town Mall in Mesquite, Texas (exterior shots).
