Reflections on a Crime (also known as Reflections in the Dark) is a 1994 American prison thriller written and directed by Jon Purdy. Mimi Rogers stars as a woman in the final hours of Death Row retelling the murder of her husband that she was incarcerated for.
Regina, a death row prisoner, raises questions about her guilt when she recalls the murder of her husband, James, through a series of confessions and flashbacks. Colin, a prison guard, with a media interest, is intrigued by the beautiful Regina and her story. Colin questions Regina about her late husband's murder and receives conflicting answers, raising questions over the cause of James' death and whether or not Regina had intended to kill him. It also becomes clear to Colin that, during James and Regina's marriage, the former became possessive and abusive, struggling to deal with an earlier relationship of Regina's that she could not forget.
