A group of activists plans to attend the Friday opening of the "United States of Leland" to determine whether the film's portrayal of an autistic boy is a replay of "vicious stereotypes." Ellen Sweeney, 32, of Brick, N.J., began protesting the movie after it was screened at the Sundance Film Festival in 2003; she said she has collected about 1,900 signatures on an online petition against the film. Sweeney, who has not seen the film, is the mother of a 7-year-old boy with autism.
