Given the hostile view Thingol took of his sisterskins association with the (other) Noldorin leaders it seems unlikely (to say the least) that any of the House of Finarfin would have married into the royal line and thus give Legolas blonde hair; I really don't know what Jackson was thinking there. Oh, well....
And so they stood on the walls of the City of Gondor, and a great wind rose and blew, and their hair, raven and golden, streamed out mingling in the air.
But that's just it: in the book, Faramirs desire to please his father is strong, but his sense of a Higher Duty compels him to leave Frodo to his task (hence the conflict Denethor always falsely perceived as a preference for Gandalf over him.) In the film, he falls prey to the same failing as Boromir and circumstance merely robs him of the chance to pursue it to the same destruction.
