What happens when our closest guarded secrets are exposed by someone with an ulterior agenda? That question is at the heart of the new thriller “A Patch of Fog,” about a sinister security guard (Stephen Graham) who blackmails a famous TV host (Conleth Hill) into friendship after he catches him shoplifting and threatens to expose it to the world. It co-stars Lara Pulver (“Edge of Tomorrow”), Arsher Ali (“Remainder”), Stuart Graham (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”) and Ian McElhinney (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”).
