Biography from Leonard Maltin's Movie Encyclopedia:

After years of accomplished performances on the New York stage, McDonnell made a vivid impression on movie audiences-and received an Oscar nomination as Supporting Actress-as Stands With a Fist, the white woman living with Indians in Kevin Costner's Oscar-winning Dances With Wolves (1990). Before this, she had appeared in plays ranging from Sam Shepard's "Buried Child" to "Still Life" (for which she won an Obie), appeared briefly in Garbo Talks (1984), and had featured roles in John Sayles'Matewan (1987) and the action film Tiger Warsaw (1988, opposite Patrick Swayze). Since the success of Dances With Wolves McDonnell has played Kevin Kline's wife in Grand Canyon (1991) and Robert Redford's onetime girlfriend in Sneakers (1992). She had her first starring role in John Sayles'Passion Fish (1992), playing an acid-tongued actress who's confined to a wheelchair after a crippling accident; it was, at last, a part she could sink her teeth into, and her riveting performance earned her a Best Actress Oscar nomination. She has also appeared in the TV movie Arthur Miller's The American Clock (1993) and Blue Chips (1994).
