Written, directed by, and starring Jim Cummings (Thunder Road, The Wolf Of Snow Hollow) and PJ McCabe, The Beta Test is a scathing satire of outdated Hollywood sleaze, rampant consumerism, and an adulterous horror story for a hyper-connected digital generation.
Shortly before his wedding, ruthless talent agent, Jordan (Jim Cummings) receives a mysterious envelope offering no-strings-attached sex with a stranger in a hotel room. Initially amused, then intrigued, he becomes obsessed by the idea of a secret erotic adventure and impulsively accepts. But will he regret his choices when his meticulous, superficial world threatens to collapse under the weight of his burgeoning lies?
Following its world premiere at Berlin International Film Festival and screenings at Edinburgh International Film Festival and Tribeca Film Festival, The Beta Test finds rising star Jim Cummings at his acerbic best as he once again skewers the ego of a man on the edge of disaster and the society around him.
