The Hunt For The Unicorn Killer

NBC, May 9, 10

In the early '70s, Holly Maddux, beautiful Bryn Mawr alum, met Ira Einhorn, charming social activist. Ira, Holly soon learned, was also an abusive womanizer. Eventually her rotting corpse was found in his apartment. Having fled the U.S. for Ireland, Einhorn was finally tried in absentia and found guilty of murder. (He's currently in France, where he is appealing extradition.) Out of this intricate, unsettling story has come a flat, ponderous miniseries. The pace is maddeningly sluggish, and Kevin Anderson generates too little of the charisma that the real Einhorn must have possessed.
