The Girl In The Park Gets Theatrical Distribution

Premiere interviewed actress Sigourney Weaver (Kate Bosworth's co-star in The Girl In The Park ) mentioned that The Weinstein Company has bought the distribution rights to The Girl In The Park.

Here's the part of her interview with The Girl In The Park and Kate Bosworth mention:

reveals exclusively to us that The Weinstein Co. has bought The Girl in the Park, an emotionally grueling drama that played last year's Toronto Internationl Film Festival in which she stars as a woman who comes to believe that a grimy street hooker, played by Kate Bosworth, may be her long lost daughter.

Premiere: Let me start by saying that I saw The Girl in the Park in Toronto and I think it's one of your best performances.
Sigourney Weaver: Oh, good! Thank you.

Do you have high hopes? I don't think it has distribution yet.
It does. It's been bought by Weinstein. Harvey hasn't seen it yet. When they saw Snow Cake they bought it. So, I'm hoping that this is more their kind of thing and they'll give it a proper send-out. I mean, I think Kate is so brilliant in it and the relationship is so fascinating and I do think that people would really enjoy seeing this movie, but I think it's going to take some work to, you know, get the word out there. It's a smart, small film.

I loved the idea of your character being this woman who is so damaged by a tragedy that her judgment becomes impaired. She's not savvy anymore. She's not "with it."
Yeah. She's cocooned herself so much that the skills have sort of disappeared. I'm so glad you liked it!

A woman loses track of her young daughter in a park. We see her panicked, searching, desperate. Fifteen years pass. The woman’s son, a stand-up guy, is throwing an engagement party. Her husband, now remarried, is still trying to console Julia (Sigourney Weaver) over the loss. She has completely cut herself off from the world; she is a stone, unable to feel, to love. Into this barren life comes a spunky, streetwise young woman who evokes feelings Julia thought were long dead.

The Girl in the Park marks the directing debut of David Auburn, winner of both a Tony Award and a Pulitzer Prize for his play Proof, which he later adapted for the screen.
