Parents need to know that The Little Things is a serial killer thriller starring three Oscar winners: Denzel Washington as a deputy sheriff, Rami Malek as an LAPD detective, and Jared Leto as a possible killer. Expect to see images of dead bodies -- including several female corpses shown either topless or fully naked -- as well as blood spatters and gory crime scene photos. One character hits another in the head with a shovel, and a woman is threatened by an unseen stalker. Sex workers are shown, and there's some sex-related dialogue. Language is strong, with many uses of "f--k," plus "s--t," "son of a bitch," and more. The main characters have a drink in a bar, and background drinking is shown or mentioned. Despite a handful of flaws, the movie's sturdy, classical direction and Washington's performance make it worth a look for mature viewers.
