The Little Things is a 2021 American neo-noir crime thriller film written and directed by John Lee Hancock[4][5] and produced by Hancock and Mark Johnson. Set in 1990 Los Angeles, the film follows two detectives (Denzel Washington and Rami Malek) who investigate a string of murders, which lead them to a strange loner who may be the culprit (Jared Leto). The film also stars Chris Bauer, Michael Hyatt, Terry Kinney, and Natalie Morales.

The Little Things was released in the United States on January 29, 2021 by Warner Bros. Pictures, as well as a month-long simultaneous release on the HBO Max streaming service. The film received mixed reviews from critics, who praised the performances, direction, and atmosphere but noted the film as familiar and criticized the screenplay, with some comparing it unfavorably to the 1995 film Seven. For his performance, Leto received Best Supporting Actor nominations at the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards.


One night in 1990, a girl drives on a highway, stalked by a motorist. She pulls over at a gas station where the motorist follows her. The gas station is closed, and she is forced to run through the desert. She catches the attention of a passing truck driver, escaping from the pursuit.[6]

Some time later in Bakersfield, Kern County deputy sheriff Joe “Deke” Deacon is called to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to collect evidence pertaining to a recent murder. Deacon, a former L.A. Sheriff’s detective, accompanies recently appointed lead detective Jimmy Baxter to the scene of a new murder in L.A. Deacon notices similarities between the M.O. of the killing and the M.O. of an old serial murder case he was unable to solve.

That night, a woman named Ronda Rathbun is followed by a car while jogging and is reported missing the following morning. Baxter learns from the precinct’s captain Farris that Deacon got divorced and suffered a heart attack due to his obsession with the unsolved case. Baxter is advised not to involve Deacon any further, but Deacon takes vacation leave to assist in solving Baxter’s case.

The next night, the police discover the body of another victim washed up beneath a bridge. Baxter learns the M.O. is consistent with that of the earlier murder and others: the victims were all prostitutes stabbed to death. Deacon begins investigating Albert Sparma, a suspect working at a repair store in proximity to the murders. Deacon tails Sparma but is thwarted, so he takes Sparma in for questioning. While under interrogation, Sparma taunts the detectives and is released after provoking Deacon into an angry outburst.
