film played / starred by

Hello again,

I'd like to ask you about a sentence written by a student:

'The latest film directed and played by X. is really fantastic because it presents certain problems and it's based on real life.' (X. = the name of an actor)

I suppose 'played by' should be replaced here with 'starred by.'

By the way, it also seems to me to that 'certain problems and it's based on real life' should be replaced with 'some true problems based on real life experiences / story / events'

Thank you for your help in advance.
