PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — The Ozark Mountains drama "Winter's Bone" and the war-on-terror documentary "Restrepo" have won top honors among U.S. movies at the Sundance Film Festival.

"Winter's Bone," the story of a 17-year-old trying to uncover the fate of her father among the criminal clans of the Ozarks, earned the grand jury prize for American dramas. The U.S. documentary prize went to "Restrepo," which chronicles the lives of an American platoon fighting in Afghanistan.

The audience award for favorite U.S. drama chosen by Sundance fans was given to the romance "happythankyoumoreplease," directed by and starring Josh Radnor of "How I Met Your Mother." The public-school study "Waiting for Superman" won the audience award for U.S. documentaries.
