10. On Marriage (Your Own): As Capt. George Ellerby In The Departed (2006)

8. On Romantic Attraction: As John In To Rome With Love (2012)

“Yes. She does have a certain something, which trumps logic. So go ahead, walk into the propeller.”

Woody Allen penned these wise words from Baldwin to speak to his young friend (possibly younger self) in this love letter to Rome.
