Plot summary

What is The Little Things movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The Little Things" movie plot summary.

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.
Some time later in Bakersfield, Kern County deputy sheriff Joe "Deke" Deacon (Denzel Washington) 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 (Maya Kazan) 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 (Jared Leto), 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.
