Review: ‘PATCH OF FOG’ will engulf you in its plot.

XLrator Media will be releasing A PATCH OF FOG on VOD and iTunes on January 24th.  The film stars Stephen Graham (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”), Conleth Hill (Lord Varys in HBO’s “Game of Thrones”) and was directed by Michael Lennox.  
Fame. What are the inherent risks we take to remain in the spotlight? And for those who want to attain the same status, how do we crack the upper echelon if our station begs to differ? In the new film, PATCH OF FOG, famed author and television host is caught shoplifting and the security guard who snags him uses blackmail to kindle a relationship that spells danger for both parties.The plot seems relatively straight forward, but writers John Cairns and Michael McCartney take us on a journey with more clever twists and turns than perhaps any mystery novel on the shelf. Conleth Hill, known for his role as Lord Varys in Game of Thrones, shows a completely different side. Living life with a compulsion for the old grab and run, he is in a constant state of putting his renown on the line. It is his high. On the other end of the spectrum, Stephen Graham, who made quite the name for himself as Al Capone on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, wishes nothing more than to be lifted from his mundane obscurity and leverage power over the his victim. The chemistry between Hill and Graham is electric and unnerving. Don’t be fooled by the baseline description of the plot. Patch of Fog is a clever game of sociopathic cat and mouse. The film feels like a novel brought to life on the big screen. With stellar direction from Michael Lennox and a fantastic storyline that doesn’t  give up until the very final shot, Patch of Fog will quickly engulf you.
