But it wasn't the beautiful roses that caused the bishop and his advisors to fall to their knees; for there, on the tilma, was a picture of the Blessed Virgin Mary precisely as Juan had described her.The next day, after showing the Tilma at the Cathedral, Juan took the bishop to the spot where he first met Mary.The bishop's servants, who were suspicious of the rural peasant, kept him waiting for hours.The bishop-elect told Juan that he would consider the request of the Lady and told him he could visit him again if he so desired.In short, it won practically every award it possibly could.
Personally, I believe that Pacino gives the performance of his career, and Streep is amazing in her three roles. This film not only won a record 11 Emmys, taking the award for Outstanding Miniseries and all four acting trophies, it also won those same awards at the Golden Globe presentations plus four SAG acting awards.
Both Pitt and Cohn are in the closet: Pitt out of shame and religious turmoil, Cohn to preserve his power and access.

On Sunday, after again waiting for hours, Juan met with the bishop who, on re-hearing his story, asked him to ask the Lady to provide a sign as a proof of who she was. Only peace, my little son." Unfortunately, Juan was not able to return to the hill the next day. Bring them then to me." While it was freezing on the hillside, Juan obeyed Mary's instructions and went to the top of the hill where he found a full bloom of Castilian roses.
Juan dutifully returned to the hill and told Mary, who was again waiting for him there, of the bishop's request. His uncle had become mortally ill and Juan stayed with him to care for him. Removing his tilma, a poncho-like cape made of cactus fiber, he cut the roses and carried them back to Mary.
