What is The Little Things about?
The Little Things is a suspenseful mystery centered around the investigation of a serial killer in 1990s Los Angeles. Deputy Sheriff Joe “Deke” Deacon (Denzel Washington) is sent to a neighboring Los Angeles county to help collect evidence from a murder. When he arrives, he notices disturbing similarities between the murder and a cold case that he investigated years prior.
As more murders occur over the next few days, Deacon decides to assist lead detective Jimmy Baxter (Rami Malek) in hunting for the serial killer. Tension builds as the two become entangled in the case and more details about Deacon’s haunting past are revealed. As the current case becomes increasingly similar to the one that’s been haunting Deacon for years, the viewer wonders if history is doomed to repeat itself or if closure will ever be achieved.
Though The Little Things nearly doubled its projected box office earnings for opening weekend, it received average reviews from critics and everyday viewers. If you’re a devoted fan of neo-noir crime thrillers, The Little Things will likely deliver what you’re looking for.
