She says a student acting as the master of ceremonies also was disciplined. Ross-Walton says she believes her daughter is being singled out because it was a same-sex proposal. A statement from the Calhoun County School District says reports about the incident may have created a "misimpression" about what happened.

'The Invitation' has a thrilling evening planned for you

Los Angeles Times

The less you know about Karyn Kusama's excellent psychological thriller "The Invitation" the better. The trailer promises a dinner party among old friends where something goes very wrong, and that's about all the premise one needs. The party takes place at a rambling Midcentury Modern home (which has edged out the Victorian mansion as the cinematic creepy house du jour), set deep in the canyons of the Hollywood Hills, eliciting its own dark historical references. Kusama reveals and conceals the geography of the house, parceling out just enough information to understand its logic, while leaving certain dim recesses mysterious. The house is haunted with memories for the de facto guest of honor, Will (Logan Marshall-Green), a serious bearded man who seems too young to have the past that he does.
