Captures the essence of a little girls dream of freedom from communism
9 July 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pin for the Butterfly did a great job in showing the time of communism inside the Czech Republic. It does have some genuine shots of the beautiful city of Prague as well.

The movie captures a heart felt story of a young girl's pipe-dream of finding freedom and going to America with her Uncle.

The actors did an outstanding job showing the full range of emotions.

The ending is quite stirring and pulls at the heart strings!

I highly recommend this movie.
