Academy Award winners Denzel Washington (“Training Day,” “Glory”), Rami
Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”) and Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club”) star in
the psychological thriller “The Little Things.” John Lee Hancock (“The
Blind Side,” “Saving Mr. Banks,” “The Founder”) directed the film from his
own original screenplay.
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 killer who is terrorizing
the city. Leading the hunt, L.A. Sheriff Department Sergeant Jim Baxter
(Malek), 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.
The main cast also includes Natalie Morales (“Battle of the Sexes”), Terry
Kinney (“Mile 22,” TV’s “Billions”), Chris Bauer (“Sully,” TV’s “The
Deuce”), Joris Jarsky (TV’s “Bad Blood”), Isabel Arraiza (TV’s “Pearson”)
and Michael Hyatt (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”).
“The Little Things” is produced by Oscar- and Emmy-winning producer Mark
Johnson (“Breaking Bad,” “Rain Man”) and Hancock, with Mike Drake and Kevin
McCormick serving as executive producers.
