The tale of a free man who must adapt to survive under violent oppression when he's kidnapped and sold into slavery in the 19th century American south. A family man and ship captain who's forced to consider his own mortality and the safety of his crew when their ship comes under attack from African pirates. After a bad breakup, a lonely man searching for companionship installs a new, intelligent operating system into his computer and soon realizes that the line between man and machine is blurrier than he originally imagined.

The best picture nominees at this year's Oscars represent the best of the best in a wonderful year for film. And, truthfully, the vast, diverse nature of their subject matter and tone leaves little to be desired.

Except, you know, adorable little kids acting them out in advance of next week's ceremony.

Yesterday, the fine folks at CineFix published a video on YouTube that has children acting out the iconic scenes from the best films of 2013 and the result is as sweet and wonderful as you'd imagine.
