Little Rock native David Auburn who won a Pulitzer Prize for his play "Proof" is moving behind the camera.  After writing the feature film screenplays for "Proof" (starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Jake Gyllenhaal) and "The Lake House" (starring Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock), Auburn now directs "The Girl in the Park."  The film will screen as a special presentation at this year's Toronto Film Festival.
