Matching HashMap Key To Value

Hello, I am trying to write a program that stores information about film titles in JavaBean components. When a user clicks on a button with a letter from A to Z, the letter is fed to the setFilmData() method where a list of all the film titles beginning with that letter are retrieved. I am unsure of how to match the keys with the corresponding values. Please see the link which has a screenshot of the user interface. I would like the data in each JavaBean to end up in the JTable you see in the program.

Where are the values being kept? It seems like it would be most logically to keep them in a TreeMap and not use the TreeSet at all. In the map you could just call

The values are stored in a HashMap along with keys which are the film titles. Once I have the title, I need the corresponding Bean to extracted the encapsulated information about the film. I am creating the software for an illiterate person, so I need to make it as intuitive and easy as possible for this particular user.
I agree. Here's the link:
