Based on the Book
At my library, we have a "Raves and Faves" program which features sure-fire reads in greater quantities which are often displayed near the entrance so that customers can quickly grab a great read. We included "Wild" by Cheryl Strayed and "Still Alice" by Lisa Genova. Needless to say, both titles quickly exited the library to fill holds.
A display of books and the films they are based on is a quick win for your collection as readers and watchers will be intrigued to see these collected together. Good readers' advisors probably do not need a lot of aids to find these quickly but there are a lot of resources out there to find these items.
Mid-Continent Public Library offers 1450 book titles and the movies they inspired.
