Law & Order: Killerz (1999)
Hallee Hirsh deserves an Emmy for her performance in this episode
This episode ranks in the top 10-13 of all Law & Order episodes. Instead of two cases, it revolves around just one, the murder of a young boy who was placed in a sewer pipe with batteries in his mouth. After running down various leads, it starts looking like the perpetrator is a young 11 year old girl name Jenny Brandt and played to perfection by Hallee Hirsh. Where this young girl found the motivation to be able to go to the depths of evil she was able to do is beyond me. I had previously seen her in nice roles like playing Tom Hanks eight year old Aunt Annabelle in You've Got Mail. I have also seen her since in a wide variety of roles, both nice (Disney Channel movie) and not so nice (Dr Greene's daughter on ER). Most recently, last month, she starred on a Hallmark Channel movie opposite Richard Thomas in a movie called Wild Hearts. At any rate, her performance in Killerz should have won her an Emmy. Especially eerie were the closeups on her face during her trial - the look in her eyes as each stage of the trial progressed and when it became apparent that she was going to get away with it. The final look at a little boy entering the building was the clincher! I expect a very long and productive career from young Hallee Hirsh.
