With most stores closed, Christmas Day has become one of the nation’s most popular movie-going days of the year as families look for activities they can do together. Last holiday season witnessed the release of a number of popular and highly acclaimed films, including The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Marley and Me The Curious Case of Benjamin Button went on to receive thirteen Academy Award nominations including Best Picture.
