Kern County Deputy Sheriff Joe “Deke” Deacon (Washington) is sent to Los Angeles for what should have been a quick evidence‐gathering assignment. Instead, he becomes embroiled in the search for a serial killer who is terrorizing the city. Leading the hunt, L.A. Sheriff Department Sergeant JimBaxter (Malik), impressed with Deke’s cop instincts, unofficially engages his help. But as they track the killer, Baxter is unaware that the investigation is dredging up echoes of Deke’s past, uncovering disturbing secrets that could threaten more than his case.

Flawed but well-made, violent, bloody serial killer tale.

What Parents Need to Know

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.
