Tavi Gevinson, the 16-year old sensation behind the site TheStyleRookie, has taken on a sweet and dark new short film for her latest project, and it’s pure awesomeness.

The film, titled “Cadaver”, tells the story of a dead man who just wants one more moment with his wife. Gevinson does the narration–lovingly crafted poetry–and sings (a lovely cover of Neil Young’s “Heart Of Gold” which fits perfectly over the end credits), and Doc Brown himself plays the dead man. There’s also an appearance by Kathy Bates.

The animated short is directed by Jonah Ansell; the book, music, and film can be pre-ordered now on Amazon.
