The Blues Brothers

Director: John Landis

Jake Blues is just out of jail, and teams up with his brother, Elwood on a ‘mission from God’ to raise funds for the orphanage in which they grew up. The only thing they can do is do what they do best: play music. So they get their old band together, and set out on their way—while getting in a bit of trouble here and there.

Streaming Details:
The Blues Brothers is available to stream on Starz on Amazon or Hulu and for digital rental.
