We know Noirvember is over, but this movie event is one of our absolute favorites, so we couldn’t miss it. For this year’s edition, Nik and Sofia chose their all-time favorite noir films, and had our noir newbie chick, Getter, watch them for the first time! Did she love them? Hate them? Are we still friends with her??
Listen to one of our last episodes of 2018 to find out, as the chicks discuss the noir classics Sweet Smell of Success (1957), and Sunset Boulevard (1950).
