Soraya

Character Analysis

One of the first people we meet in Disgrace, Soraya is the prostitute that David sleeps with every Thursday at 2:00. Their "relationship" ends when David sees her with her sons. Through her we learn that, for David, sex is a need that has to be satisfied, but it's not necessarily (or even generally) based on love.
