Doug Kean of Sleepy Head Beds

Since 2010, Sleepyhead Beds has delivered over 8,000 donated, gently used, and recycled beds to Kansas City metro area children in need of a comfortable place to sleep. They ask for gently-used beds, bedding or donations from the generous people of the Kansas City metro area. When a bed is donated, with the help of their amazing volunteers, they pick it up and take it to their facility to be sanitized. Only then does it get their Kid-Worthy seal of approval. Then it’s ready to be delivered to the family’s home and placed in the child’s room. They don’t require any formal applications; all they ask is that the donated beds are in good condition. That means beds with stains and/or odors will not be accepted.

Today host Latahra Smith will talk with Doug Kean, Operations and Logistics Manager about Sleepyhead Beds’ mission to make sure every child in KC has a bed to sleep in and how you can donate and show your support for their efforts.

You’ve seen it all before, but not like this and not with this cast and not at this locale. “Crazy Rich Asians” is a very likable Cinderella story, a romantic comedy that seems fresh due to its engaging all-Asian cast, feel-good vibe and amusing script. It’s a sweet wish-fulfillment fantasy, the positive Ying to “Fifty Shades of Grey’s” negative Yang.

 

“Alpha” is a visually spectacular pre-history epic from writer-director Albert Hughes. Kodi Smit-McPhee plays a young hunter who becomes the first to develop a cooperative relationship with man’s best friend. It’s a family-friendly survival saga.

 

Mark Wahlberg stars in the ultra-violent and morally ambiguous action-adventure, “Mile 22.” Wahlberg plays the leader of a CIA special ops team that must make a dangerous 22-mile trek through an East Asian city to help a valuable prisoner escape. In spite of some well-staged action sequences, this noisy thiller ultimately outfoxes itself.

 

“The Miseducation of Cameron Post” is about a lesbian teen, played by Chloë Grace Moretz, who is forced by family to attend a Christian conversion therapy camp. Although the cast is fine, Moretz’s character is just too enigmatic and unfocused.

 

“Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood” profiles Scotty Bowers, a 95-year-old man who was once a Tinseltown pimp and claims to have been the sexual partner of many of the biggest male and female stars from the movie’s golden age. While the stories are salacious, Scotty comes off as a likably foul-mouthed geezer.

 

Also opening this week, Uma Thurman stars in “Down a Dark Hall,” a horror film set at a boarding school. “McQueen” is a documentary about famed fashion designer Alexander McQueen. “Our House” is a horror thriller about a machine that can bring back the dead. “Never Goin’ Back” is a coming of age drama.  “Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich” is a horror…oh, well, enough said.


The remarkable true story of Ron Stallworth has been brought to the big screen by director Spike Lee and co-writer Kevin Willmott, who is professor of film at KU. John David Washington (“Ballers”) plays Stallworth, a black Colorado police officer who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan in the 1970s. Adam Driver (“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”) plays a Jewish police officer who posed as Stallworth in his face-to-face encounters with the Klan. Topher Grace (“That 70s Show”) plays Klan leader, David Duke.
