The Beta Test

  Jim Cummings, PJ McCabe

  United States     91 minutes


When hot-shot Hollywood talent agent Jordan Hines receives a mysterious purple envelope containing an invitation for an anonymous sexual encounter, the offer proves too tempting to resist. But the liaison has surprising ramifications. Jordan becomes ensnared in a web of conspiracy, paranoia, and guilt that threatens to upend both his career and his personal life. Writer-director Cummings (Thunder Road, The Wolf of Snow Hollow) delivers a hilariously manic performance as Jordan who embarks on a mission to determine the origins of the envelope. The Beta Test is a wickedly funny, blood-stained satire of the blind arrogance and toxic masculinity that runs rampant in the movie business.
